Tips for Improved Heating Efficiency

Tips for Improved Heating Efficiency

Are you looking for ways to improve your heating system’s efficiency? You’ve come to the right place! We spend a lot of money on heating our homes, but we don’t want to sacrifice comfort. That’s where improved efficiency comes in. You can improve the performance of your system while using less fuel and accumulating less wear and tear over time.

Keep reading for tips on how to get more from your furnace, for less.

Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat

A smart thermostat is a great way to bring both savings and convenience to your home. A smart thermostat allows you to control your temperature precisely and remotely. You can adjust from your phone and set specific times to change the temperature, such as when you leave for work or as you get ready for bed.

The thermostat will also begin to learn your habits and adjust accordingly, showing you more ways you could save on energy over time.

Improve Insulation

The warm air created by your furnace has to go somewhere, and if there are gaps or cracks around your home leading to the outside, that’s where it will choose. Improving your home insulation by sealing any cracks around windows and doors can make a big difference in heating efficiency. The less warm air leaves your home, the less your furnace needs to run to replace it, saving you money.

Keep Up With Maintenance

Keeping up with proper maintenance is also a major factor in whether or not your system runs efficiently. Dirty air filters restrict airflow and cause the system to work harder, so remember to change them every 30 to 90 days.

Also, your yearly tune-up with a professional technician is a great opportunity to spot any efficiency issues and fix them before they become repairs.
