How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Despite the fact it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold days. It’s still an important time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy recommendations for you to fully receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
  2. 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 circulate 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 wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning. We can help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your heating costs, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when no one is there? 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 running as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you wish to have individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save you money.

Half of the energy used in your house is due to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
