How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency04/05/2016 Even though it’s spring, we might still see more cold days. It’s still a good time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy ideas for you to completely reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency. Change Your Furnace Filter You’ve heard this frequently, but changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow better 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 make your system work harder. 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 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 wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Cool Power LLC . We can help. Install a Programmable Thermostat To reduce your heating expenses, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that matches your lifestyle needs. 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 extend its lifespan. Zoned Heating If you would like individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills. Half of the energy used in your home is due to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key. At Cool Power LLC , we can help make sure your heating and cooling system is working at peak efficiency.
