With that flip of the switch comes new thoughtfulness both for your comfort and for your wallet. Energy efficiency universally has an impact on everyone who operates a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on nature depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re watching for little ways to make a big impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this season, think about these simple fixes: Easy Fixes Filters: probably the most unused simple fix to help better the energy efficiency of your furnace, exchanging filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it may also help you keep your indoor air quality high. Thermostat settings: setting your thermostat a few degrees cooler than typical is a very easy way to save money. Comfort is still key, but you may be surprised what a couple degrees cooler can do for your energy bills. Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like always adjusting your thermostat before you head out the day or when you know you won’t be inside for a while? Programmable thermostats can leave you with savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re not around or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as critical. 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 look at your windows and doors and figure out if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping. Comfort is something we’re always looking for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These few tips are the ideal 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.
