How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency

Heating

Even though it’s spring, we might still see more cold weather. It’s still a good time to take a closer look 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 changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and greater 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’ll be harder 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 would hope. 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 costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find wide variety 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 planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
