Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Holdrege

Now that cooler weather is here to stay in Holdrege, most homeowners will start seriously thinking about switching on the furnace for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new attention both for your comfort and for your check book.

Energy efficiency universally impacts everyone who uses a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the environment depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re watching for little ways to make a huge impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this season, consider these pointers:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: arguably the most overlooked simple fix to help boost the energy efficiency of your furnace, swapping out filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it can also help you keep your indoor air quality high.
  • Thermostat settings: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees cooler than normal is a very simple way to save a few bucks. Comfort is still paramount, but you may be surprised what a handful of degrees cooler can do for your energy expenses.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like constantly adjusting your thermostat before you leave for the day or when you know you won’t be home for a bit? Programmable thermostats can leave you with savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re away or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as important.
  • Weatherstripping: regardless if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep warm air from leaking out after you’ve already paid for it. Take a few minutes to walk around your home and inspect your windows and doors and decide if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping.

Comfort is something we’re always on the search for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These few tips are a perfect place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to boost the efficiency of your furnace and potentially save a few dollars.
