How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Although it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold weather. It’s still an important time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to completely take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, but changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow better through your residence when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
  2. 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 push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Brogan Heating & AC Inc. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating expenses, look into a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges 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 it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you wish to have individual control over the temperature of each in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
