Despite the fact it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold days. It’s still a great time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy recommendations for you to completely reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this time and time again, 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 recommendations. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your home’s ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently circulate air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at B & B Heating & Cooling. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your heating bills, look into a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t home? 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 ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is operating as expected. 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 each in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain 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 attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
