Even though it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold days. It’s still a great time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy recommendations for you to wholly take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this frequently, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is key. 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. 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 harder for your system to efficiently circulate 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 wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at GV Heating & Air. We can help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating bills, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find wide variety 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 working as planned. 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 each 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 energy bills.
