Although it’s spring, we could still see more cold temps. It’s still an important time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy tips for you to completely take advantage of 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 key. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow better through your home when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s harder 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 expect to be. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Mayeuxs AC & Heating. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your heating expenses, look into a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is running as expected. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you wish to have individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.
Half of the energy used in your house is due to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
