Despite the fact it’s spring, we might still see more cold temps. It’s still a good time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy ideas for you to wholly reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow better through your house when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at The Frazier Company. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your heating expenses, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why waste 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 forget 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 would like 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 increase your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
Half of the energy used in your residence goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is important. At The Frazier Company, we can help make sure your heating and cooling system is operating at peak efficiency.
