How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Although it’s spring, we might still see more cold days. It’s still a great time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have several 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 replacing your furnace’s filter is so important. 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 freely through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to 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 circulate 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 curious how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your heating expenses, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find an array 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 ignore 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.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of each 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 heating bills.

Half of the energy used in your house goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is important.
