Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Humble11/12/2015 It’s winter in Humble, which means your furnace will be working hard for you for the next few months. It’ll keep you warm and cozy, but that could be hard on your wallet. 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 pulled together some simple tips for you that can help you keep your furnace running efficiently: Change your furnace filter: people forget to check and change their furnace filters all the time, which is bad news because this is undoubtedly 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: moving your thermostat down just a few degrees below where you normally have it can help you save money on your heating bill without damaging your comfort. Use a programmable thermostat: if you don’t want the hassle of changing your thermostat every day or trying to remember to set 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 away or when you’re sleeping. Install weatherstripping: sealing around your doors and windows can help contain warm air inside your home. Look at your doors and windows and install new weatherstripping where needed and re-caulk any areas that need it. Everyone likes to be comfortable, no matter what the weather is like outside. Use these tips to make your home comfort more affordable by improving the efficiency of your furnace.
