Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Tomball

Heating

Now that colder weather is here to stay in Tomball, most people will start seriously thinking about switching on the furnace for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new consideration both for your comfort and for your check book.

Energy efficiency universally impacts everyone who runs a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the ecosystem depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re searching for little ways to make a big impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this season, consider these simple fixes:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: arguably the most forgotten simple fix to help impact the energy efficiency of your furnace, swapping out filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it could also help you keep your indoor air quality high.
  • Thermostat settings: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees cooler than normal is a very basic way to save money. Comfort is still paramount, but you may be surprised what a few degrees cooler can do for your energy bills.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like constantly adjusting your thermostat before you are away for the day or when you know you won’t be home for an extended period? Programmable thermostats can provide you with savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re away or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as important.
  • Weatherstripping: whether it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep warm air from escaping after you’ve already paid for it. Take a little time to walk around your home and look at your windows and doors and determine if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping.

Comfort is something we’re always looking for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These few tips are a great place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to increase the efficiency of your furnace and probably save money.
