How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Despite the fact it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold temps. It’s still an important time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy tips for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® advises replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more freely through your house when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and enhanced 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 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 wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at McNatt Inc. We’re happy to help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your heating expenses, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that matches 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 expected. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save you money.
