How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency04/05/2016 Even though it’s spring, we might still see more cold weather. It’s still a good time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy recommendations for you to completely reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency. Change Your Furnace Filter You’ve heard this frequently, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® advises swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more freely through your residence when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and enhanced 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 harder for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at All Seasons Heating & A/C Co. We’re happy to help. Install a Programmable Thermostat To lower your heating bills, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find a large option 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 operating as it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan. Zoned Heating If you want individual control over the temperature of each in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save you money. Half of the energy used in your residence is attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key. At All Seasons Heating & A/C Co, we can help you feel confident that your heating and cooling system is operating at peak efficiency.
