Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Perry

Now that cooler weather is here to stay in Perry, most folks will start seriously thinking about flipping on the furnace for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new consideration both for your comfort and for your check book.

Energy efficiency universally impacts 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 large impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this time of year, ponder these tips:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: probably the most unused simple fix to help boost the energy efficiency of your furnace, swapping out filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it may also help you keep your indoor air quality up to par.
  • Thermostat settings: dialing your thermostat a few degrees cooler than usual is a very simple way to save a few dollars. Comfort is still important, but you may be surprised what a handful of degrees cooler can do for your energy bills.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like continually adjusting your thermostat before you head out the day or when you know you won’t be inside for a bit? Programmable thermostats can offer you savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re not around or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as critical.
  • Weatherstripping: no matter if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep warm air from getting out after you’ve already paid for it. Take a little time 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 improve the efficiency of your furnace and possibly save a few dollars.
