Despite the fact it’s spring, we could still see more cold days. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy recommendations for you to fully receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this repeatedly, but replacing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more easily through your house when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently drive 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 curious how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Bon Air Service Company. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your heating costs, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to overlook 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 extend its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms 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.
