Although it’s spring, we might still see more cold temps. It’s still an important time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy recommendations for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow better through your home when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently circulate 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 curious how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning. We can help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating bills, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that will meet 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 expected. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms 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 home goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical. At Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning, we can help you feel confident that your heating and cooling system is operating at peak efficiency.
