Although it’s spring, we could still see more cold days. It’s still an important time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy tips for you to completely receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this repeatedly, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently circulate air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. We can help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating expenses, do some research on 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 trouble finding one that will meet your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to forget 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 add years to its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.
