How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Even though it’s spring, we might still see more cold days. It’s still a great time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy tips for you to wholly take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but changing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more freely through your residence when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. A buildup 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 push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating expenses, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working 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 want 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 enhance your furnace efficiency and save you money.
