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 an important time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy recommendations for you to completely receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, 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 more easily through your home when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and better 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 the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C.. We’re happy to help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your heating costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that will meet your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget 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 add years to 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 help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.

Half of the energy used in your house is attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
