How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Despite the fact it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still an important time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy tips for you to fully 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 so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more easily through your home when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. A buildup 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 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 expect to be. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at D & D Heating & AC. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your heating bills, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find a large option of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that will meet your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is running as expected. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend 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 enhance your furnace efficiency and save you money.
