How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Even though 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 ideas for you to completely receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but replacing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more freely through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and greater 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’ll be harder for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc. We can help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your heating expenses, look into a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that matches 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 working as expected. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.

Half of the energy used in your house is attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key. At Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc, we can help make sure your heating and cooling system is running at peak efficiency.
