Efficiency of Your Furnace

You might be looking at your energy bill this month wondering why it’s so expensive all the time. Well, one way that you can reduce the cost is to make the appliances and systems in your home more efficient. One place to start is to increase the efficiency of your furnace.

As furnaces age, they slowly become less and less efficient, but with care and maintenance, it doesn’t have to be a major problem.

Make the Efficiency of Your Furnace a Non-Issue

  • Clear the area around vents: Keeping furniture, curtains and other things away from the vents in your home. If the air can’t properly circulate in your home, your furnace will have to work overtime to warm the rooms in your house.
  • Clean your ducts regularly: Duct cleaning is essential to allowing the warm air from your furnace to flow freely around your home. If ducts are dirty or have debris in them then airflow is inhibited and your furnace has to work harder to spread the warmth.
  • Air filters need replacing: Clean or replace your air filter. If the air filter in your furnace is dirty then the airflow is restricted and your furnace has to work harder than normal to push air through the filter and then through your home.
  • Regular furnace maintenance: Annual maintenance is one of the best ways to ensure you have an efficient furnace. An experienced and knowledgable furnace repair and furnace maintenance technician will evaluate your furnace and perform a tune-up to ensure that it’s running as efficiently and reliably as possible. This appointment will also ensure that you avoid as many repairs as possible by addressing any concerns early on before they lead to major repairs and in turn expensive repair costs.

Overall, the HVAC industry and furnace production industry has taken steps to improve environmental sustainability. Green HVAC technology is more efficient, will save you money, will last longer and reduce your carbon footprint compared to older furnaces and HVAC systems. If you’re wondering about the Efficiency of Your Furnace or replacing your furnace there’s really no reason not to buy a high-efficiency furnace.
