Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Marshall11/12/2015 It’s winter in Marshall, which means your furnace will be working hard for you for the next few months. It’ll keep you nice and cozy, but that could cost you. How efficient is your furnace? The energy efficiency of your furnace can affect everything from your comfort to your wallet to our environment. Because energy efficiency is so important to so many things, we’ve collected some simple tips for you that can help you keep your furnace operating efficiently: Change your furnace filter: people forget to check and change their furnace filters all the time, which is sad because this is most likely the easiest thing you can do to keep your furnace running efficiently and help improve your indoor air quality. Simply set a reminder to check it routinely and change it if it’s getting clogged. Adjust your thermostat settings: turning your thermostat down just a few degrees lower than you normally have it can help you save money on your heating bill without compromising on your comfort. Use a programmable thermostat: if you don’t want the annoyance of fine-tuning your thermostat every day or trying to remember to tweak it before a vacation, you’d benefit from a programmable thermostat. It can help you save money by automatically lowering the temperature in your home when you’re out or when you’re sleeping. Install weatherstripping: sealing around your doors and windows can help hold warm air inside your home. Inspect your doors and windows and install new weatherstripping where it’s dry or cracking and re-caulk any areas that need it. Everyone likes to be comfortable, no matter what the weather is like outside. These tips can help make your home comfort more affordable by boosting the efficiency of your furnace.
