How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Although 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 take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, but replacing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, 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 enhanced furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
  2. 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 harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at True Temp Heating & Air Inc. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your heating costs, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to overlook the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working 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 wish to have individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
