How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency04/05/2016 Despite the fact it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold weather. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy tips for you to fully reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency. Change Your Furnace Filter You’ve heard this time and time again, but changing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be 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 would hope. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning. We can assist you. 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 a large option of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches your lifestyle needs. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up It’s easy to overlook the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is running as expected. 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 each 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 on heating bills. Half of the energy used in your residence is due to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key. At Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning, we can help ensure your heating and cooling system is operating at peak efficiency.
