How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Even though it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to fully reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, but exchanging 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 instructions. Air can flow better through your house when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult 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 would expect. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your heating costs, 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 trouble finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to overlook 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 add years to its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you wish to have individual control over the temperature of each 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 you money.

Half of the energy used in your residence is attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is important.
