Despite the fact it’s spring, we could still 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 wholly reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this repeatedly, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more freely through your residence when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your 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 overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating bills, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty 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 running as expected. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want 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 enhance your furnace efficiency and save you money.
Half of the energy used in your residence is due to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is important.
