How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

April 05, 2016

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

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, but changing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® advises swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more easily through your home when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make your system 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 drive air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, 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 Titan Heating & Air Conditioning. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find wide variety 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 running as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend 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 do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save you money.
