We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again (and again, and again): remember to change your air filters! This is one of the single most important and simple things you can do to easily improve your furnace efficiency. Your filters should be checked monthly and replaced at least every three months, possibly more often, depending on how hard your furnace has been working.
Take some strain off of your furnace by running the dishwasher and dryer during the day. The extra heat provided by these devices can raise the temperature in your home and make you feel a little more comfortable. And don’t forget the heating source Mother Nature has provided for you! Keep your curtains and blinds open during the day to allow the sun’s heat to warm up your home.
If you want to really control the use of your furnace this season, install a programmable thermostat. They allow you to schedule the different temperature settings throughout the day, depending on your needs. During the day when everyone’s at work or school, you can schedule your programmable thermostat to lower the temperature while you’re gone and turn it back up just before people arrive home.
Assuming your ductwork is properly sized and installed (you can have an HVAC expert check this for you), one of the things you need to worry about in regards to your furnace efficiency is air leakage. If there are gaps or holes in your ductwork, it can mean serious problems for your home, including decreased energy efficiency, increase utility bills and decreased overall comfort. Sealing or replacing your ductwork may be necessary in order to improve furnace efficiency.
In addition to reducing the air loss in your ductwork, it’s important to check your doors and windows to ensure they aren’t allowing heat to escape. You can add weather stripping as necessary or otherwise insulate places where drafts are being created in your home.
A key way to improve furnace efficiency is to have a furnace inspection and tune-up before its job really begins for the season. This will ensure your furnace is in tip-top condition by repairing any minor issues, replacing air filters and improving the performance of your system. Contact Arctic Air Conditioning today to schedule yourfurnace inspection in Middlesex, Monmouth or Ocean County.
How old is your furnace? If it’s over 10 years old, it’s probably time for a furnace replacement. Generally, these heating systems only have a lifespan of about 10-15 years, with good maintenance, and the furnaces being produced today have significantly improved energy efficiency that can greatly benefit your home. If you really want to improve efficiency, consider a furnace replacement—contact us today to learn more.
