Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Waxahachie

Heating

Now that colder weather is here to stay in Waxahachie, most homeowners will start seriously thinking about turning on the furnace for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new attention both for your comfort and for your pocket book.

Energy efficiency universally has an impact on everyone who operates a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the ecosystem depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re searching for little ways to make a big impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this season, consider these pointers:

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 can also help you keep your indoor air quality up to par.
  • Thermostat settings: setting your thermostat a few degrees cooler than usual is a very easy way to save money. Comfort is still important, but you may be surprised what a handful of degrees cooler can do for your energy costs.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like continually adjusting your thermostat before you are away for the day or when you know you won’t be inside for an extended period? Programmable thermostats can leave you with savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re not around or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as important.
  • 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 couple tips are a great place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to increase the efficiency of your furnace and probably save a few dollars.
