Despite the fact it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still a good time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy ideas for you to completely reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this frequently, but replacing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® advises swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
- 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 circulate 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, contact our professionals at J & J Air Conditioning. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your heating bills, look into a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to overlook the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working as it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
- 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 increase your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.
Half of the energy used in your residence is due to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical. At J & J Air Conditioning, we can help ensure your heating and cooling system is working at peak efficiency.
