How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Despite the fact it’s spring, we could still see more cold temps. It’s still a good time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy recommendations for you to wholly reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more freely through your house 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 more difficult 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 wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Durable Service . We’re happy to help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your heating bills, look into 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 trouble 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 expected. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase 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 enhance your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.

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