Are you looking for ways to use your furnace more efficiently this season? Here are four tips to help you save money and keep your home comfortable.
1. Upgrade Your Furnace Filter
A clean filter will help your furnace run more efficiently and extend its life span. Check your filter monthly, replace it as needed, and ensure the surrounding area is clear of any debris that could restrict airflow. It’s also a good idea to upgrade to a higher-quality filter.
2. Use a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat can help you save money on your energy bill by allowing you to set different temperatures for heating at different times of the day. For example, you can set the temperature lower when you’re away from home and raise it when you need it to be warmer.
3. Have Your Furnace Serviced Regularly
Preventive HVAC maintenance is crucial for keeping your furnace running efficiently. Have our technicians service your heating system at least once a year.
This will help to ensure that your furnace is operating at peak efficiency. Our technicians can also catch any small problems before they become larger ones.
4. Keep Your Home Insulated
Making sure your home is well insulated is one of the best ways to reduce energy waste and keep your heating system running efficiently. Check for drafts around doors and windows and add weather-stripping or caulking as needed. It would be best to have your attic and walls insulated to reduce heat loss.
Our staff of professional technicians can handle all of your heating issues, including indoor air quality. Check with us for more information on the best furnace air filter for your home.
