How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency04/05/2016 Despite the fact it’s spring, we might still see more cold days. It’s still an important time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy recommendations for you to wholly receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency. Change Your Furnace Filter You’ve heard this frequently, but replacing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, 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 enhanced 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 ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently push 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 wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Twin Air LLC. We can assist you. Install a Programmable Thermostat To lower your heating expenses, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find a large option 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 ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is operating as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help add years to 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 enhance your furnace efficiency and save you money. Half of the energy used in your house goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key. At Twin Air LLC, we can help you feel confident that your heating and cooling system is running at peak efficiency.
