Although it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still a great time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy ideas for you to fully receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow better through your house when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Miller Climate Control LLC. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your heating expenses, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working as it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you would like individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.
Half of the energy used in your residence goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
