How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Even though it’s spring, we might still see more cold temps. It’s still a great time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to wholly reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow better through your home when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and better 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 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 expect to be. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at The Frazier Company. We can help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your heating costs, 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 matches 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 expected. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want 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 improve your furnace efficiency and save you money.
