How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Despite the fact it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold days. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy recommendations for you to completely reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your home’s ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at ACS Heating and Air Conditioning. We can help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating bills, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches 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 running 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 would like 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 enhance your furnace efficiency and save you money.

Half of the energy used in your home is due to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
