How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Although it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold temps. It’s still a great time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy tips for you to completely take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but replacing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more freely through your residence when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and better 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 ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult 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 curious how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Wallpe Heating & Cooling. We can help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find a large option of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble 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 operating as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.

Half of the energy used in your home goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
