Despite the fact it’s spring, we could still see more cold days. It’s still a good time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy recommendations for you to wholly receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, 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 enhanced furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder 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 expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at JTech Mechanical. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your heating bills, look into a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
- 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.
- Zoned Heating
If you wish to have individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
