How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency

Heating

Even though it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold weather. It’s still a good time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to wholly take advantage of 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® suggests swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your home’s ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s harder for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Kelley Mechanical. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating costs, do some research on 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 difficulty 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 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 wish to have individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save you money.

Half of the energy used in your home is due to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key. At Kelley Mechanical, we can help ensure your heating and cooling system is working at peak efficiency.
