Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Marietta

Heating

Now that chilly weather is here to stay in Marietta, most people will start really thinking about flipping on the furnace for the upcoming months. With that flip of the switch comes new attention both for your comfort and for your check book.

Energy efficiency universally affects everyone who operates a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the environment depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re watching for little ways to make a huge impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this season, ponder these simple fixes:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: likely the most unused simple fix to help better the energy efficiency of your furnace, exchanging filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it may also help you keep your indoor air quality in check.
  • Thermostat settings: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees cooler than usual is a very basic way to save money. Comfort is still paramount, but you may be surprised what a couple degrees cooler can do for your energy expenses.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like always adjusting your thermostat before you are away for the day or when you know you won’t be home for a while? Programmable thermostats can leave 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 escaping after you’ve already paid for it. Take a little time to walk around your home and inspect 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 few tips are a great place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to boost the efficiency of your furnace and possibly save a few dollars.
