Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Branchville

Heating

Now that cooler weather is here to stay in Branchville, most folks will start truly thinking about flipping on the furnace for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new thoughtfulness both for your comfort and for your wallet.

Energy efficiency universally has an impact on everyone who runs a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the ecosystem depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re watching for little ways to make a big impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this year, think about these simple fixes:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: likely the most unused simple fix to help better the energy efficiency of your furnace, changing filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it can also help you keep your indoor air quality in check.
  • Thermostat settings: dialing your thermostat a few degrees cooler than typical is a very easy way to save a few dollars. Comfort is still key, but you may be surprised what a couple degrees cooler can do for your energy costs.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like constantly adjusting your thermostat before you are away for the day or when you know you won’t be around for a while? Programmable thermostats can provide you with savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re away or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as critical.
  • Weatherstripping: regardless if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep warm air from leaking out after you’ve already paid for it. Take a few minutes to walk around your home and check your windows and doors and determine if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping.

Comfort is something we’re always searching for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These handful of tips are the ideal place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to boost the efficiency of your furnace and potentially save a few dollars.
