How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Even though it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold days. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy tips for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, but changing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow better through your house when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. A buildup 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’ll be harder for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, 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 Stan's Heating, Inc . We’re happy to help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your heating expenses, look into a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that will meet your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working as expected. 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 every room 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 heating bills.
