How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency04/05/2016 Although it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold weather. It’s still an important time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency. Change Your Furnace Filter You’ve heard this time and time again, but changing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly If your 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 would hope. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling. We can assist you. Install a Programmable Thermostat To decrease your heating bills, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find wide variety 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 running as expected. 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 different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills. Half of the energy used in your residence is due to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is important.
