How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Heating

Despite the fact it’s spring, we might still see more cold weather. It’s still a good time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to fully receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but changing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more freely through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your home’s 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 overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at True Heating & Cooling. We’re happy to help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating bills, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
  4. 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 extend its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save you money.
