How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency

Heating

Although it’s spring, we might still see more cold days. It’s still a good time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy recommendations for you to fully reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Gathering 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 harder 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 wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating expenses, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why spend 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.
  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 add years to its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of each in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save you money.
