How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Although it’s spring, we might still see more cold days. It’s still a good time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy recommendations for you to completely reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s harder for your system to efficiently circulate air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Cool Power LLC . We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your heating expenses, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find a large option of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that will meet your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to overlook the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.

Half of the energy used in your home goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key. At Cool Power LLC , we can help ensure your heating and cooling system is operating at peak efficiency.
