How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency

Heating

Although it’s spring, we could still see more cold days. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy recommendations for you to completely receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, but changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more easily through your home when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your home’s ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s harder for your system to efficiently drive 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, reach out to our professionals at Innovative Mechanical, LLC. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating costs, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that will meet your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget 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 add years to its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase 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.
