Even though 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 some easy recommendations for you to completely receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this repeatedly, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends 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 make your system work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If the 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 expect. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating costs, do some research on 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 challenges finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is running as it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend 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 do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
