How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency04/05/2016 Although it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold temps. It’s still a great time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy tips for you to fully receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency. Change Your Furnace Filter You’ve heard this repeatedly, but replacing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. 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. 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 push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. We’re happy to help. Install a Programmable Thermostat To reduce your heating costs, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find a large option 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 operating as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan. Zoned Heating If you wish to have individual control over the temperature of each 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 goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key. At Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., we can help you feel confident that your heating and cooling system is operating at peak efficiency.
