How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Although it’s spring, we could still see more cold temps. It’s still an important time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy recommendations for you to fully receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but changing your furnace’s filter is so important. 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 better through your home when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Gathering 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’ll be harder for your system to efficiently circulate air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, 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 Air Alliance Team. We can help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To reduce your heating bills, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find an array 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 ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend 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 do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.

Half of the energy used in your home goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key. At Air Alliance Team, we can help make sure your heating and cooling system is working at peak efficiency.
