Even though it’s spring, we might still see more cold weather. It’s still an important time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy recommendations for you to completely receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this time and time again, but changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s harder for your system to efficiently circulate air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating bills, look into a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is operating as it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.

If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save you money.
