Even though it’s spring, we might still see more cold days. It’s still an important time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to wholly receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this frequently, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is critical. 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 more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
- 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 circulate air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating expenses, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that will meet your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.
