Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Huntsville11/12/2015 It’s winter time in Huntsville, which means your furnace will be working overtime for you for the next few months. It’ll keep you comfy and warm, but that could be hard on your wallet. How efficient is your furnace? The energy efficiency of your furnace has an impact on everything from your comfort to your wallet to our environment. Because energy efficiency is so important to so many things, we’ve compiled some easy-to-do tips for you that can help you keep your furnace working efficiently: Change your furnace filter: people forget to check and change their furnace filters all the time, which is bad news because this is probably the most effortless thing you can do to keep your furnace running efficiently and help improve your indoor air quality. Simply set a reminder to check it routinely and change it if it’s getting clogged. Adjust your thermostat settings: turning your thermostat down just a few degrees lower than you normally have it can help you save money on your heating bill without compromising on your comfort. Use a programmable thermostat: if you don’t want the hassle of changing your thermostat every day or trying to remember to set it before a vacation, you’d benefit from a programmable thermostat. It can help you save money by automatically lowering the temperature in your home when you’re away or when you’re sleeping. Install weatherstripping: sealing around your doors and windows can help contain warm air inside your home. Check your doors and windows and install new weatherstripping where it’s dry or cracking and re-caulk any areas that need it. Everyone likes to be comfortable, even when the weather is less than ideal. With these tips, you can make your home comfort more affordable by improving the efficiency of your furnace.
