How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Although it’s spring, we could still see more cold temps. It’s still a good 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 exchanging your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. 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. 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’ll be 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, reach out to our professionals at Lycoming Heating Company. We can help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your heating costs, 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 difficulty finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to overlook the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you wish to have individual control over the temperature of every room 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.

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