How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

April 05, 2016

Despite the fact it’s spring, we could still see more cold days. It’s still an important time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy recommendations for you to wholly receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, but replacing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Gathering 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’s more difficult for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Bell Air Conditioning Inc.. We can help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating expenses, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste 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.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget 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.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want 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.
