How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Despite the fact it’s spring, we might still see more cold weather. It’s still an important time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy recommendations 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 changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® advises swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make it 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 drive air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC. We can help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your heating costs, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find an array 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 forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is running as it should. 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 every room 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 you money.

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