Even though it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still an important time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy tips for you to fully reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this repeatedly, but changing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® advises 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 notice improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s 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, contact our professionals at Premium Air Services LLC. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your heating bills, look into a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when no one is there? 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 overlook 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 want individual control over the temperature of each 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.
Half of the energy used in your home goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
