Despite the fact it’s spring, we might still see more cold days. It’s still a good time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy ideas for you to fully 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 key. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder.
- 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 circulate air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working harder, 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 KDM Service Corporation. We can help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your heating costs, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find a large option of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is running as it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
- 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 improve your furnace efficiency and save you money.
Half of the energy used in your home is attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical. At KDM Service Corporation, we can help ensure your heating and cooling system is operating at peak efficiency.
