Even though it’s spring, we could still see more cold temps. It’s still a good time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy recommendations for you to fully reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this repeatedly, but replacing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more freely through your house when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
- 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 extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your heating costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why spend 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 ignore 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 add years to its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you wish to have 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 increase 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 important.
