How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency04/05/2016 Even though it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold days. It’s still an important time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy tips for you to wholly receive 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 replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and better 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 home’s ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder 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 would expect. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Dynamic Comfort Solutions. We can assist you. Install a Programmable Thermostat To reduce your heating costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find a large option of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that meets your lifestyle needs. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is operating as expected. 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 different rooms 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 on heating bills. Half of the energy used in your home goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
