Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Plover11/12/2015Now that chilly weather is here to stay in Plover, most folks will start really thinking about turning on the furnace for the upcoming months. With that flip of the switch comes new consideration both for your comfort and for your pocket 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 looking for little ways to make a large impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this year, consider these tips: Easy Fixes Filters: likely the most overlooked simple fix to help impact the energy efficiency of your furnace, changing filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it may also help you keep your indoor air quality in check. Thermostat settings: dialing your thermostat a few degrees cooler than typical is a very simple way to save money. 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 constantly adjusting your thermostat before you leave for the day or when you know you won’t be home for a while? 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 crucial. Weatherstripping: no matter 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 couple minutes to walk around your home and look at your windows and doors and determine if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping. Comfort is something we’re always on the search for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These few tips are a perfect place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to boost the efficiency of your furnace and potentially save money.
