So when you’re watching for little ways to make a huge impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this time of year, think about these simple fixes: Easy Fixes Filters: arguably the most forgotten simple fix to help better the energy efficiency of your furnace, changing filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it may also help you keep your indoor air quality in check. Thermostat settings: setting your thermostat a few degrees cooler than typical is a very basic way to save money. Comfort is still important, 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 head out the day or when you know you won’t be inside for a while? Programmable thermostats can leave you with savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re not around or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as critical. Weatherstripping: regardless if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep warm air from leaking out after you’ve already paid for it. Take a few minutes to walk around your home and check your windows and doors and decide if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping. Comfort is something we’re always on the search for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These few tips are a perfect place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to improve the efficiency of your furnace and potentially save a few dollars.
