Despite the fact it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still a good time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy recommendations for you to completely reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this repeatedly, but replacing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow better through your home when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
- 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 push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your heating expenses, look into 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 matches your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to overlook the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is operating as expected. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you wish to have individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
