Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Royse City

Now that chilly weather is here to stay in Royse City, most homeowners will start really thinking about turning on the furnace for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new consideration both for your comfort and for your check book.

Energy efficiency universally affects everyone who uses a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on nature depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re watching for little ways to make a large impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this time of year, consider these simple fixes:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: arguably the most unused simple fix to help better the energy efficiency of your furnace, changing filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it could also help you keep your indoor air quality up to par.
  • Thermostat settings: dialing your thermostat a few degrees cooler than normal is a very easy way to save a few bucks. Comfort is still important, but you may be surprised what a handful of degrees cooler can do for your energy expenses.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like continually adjusting your thermostat before you leave for the day or when you know you won’t be around for a bit? Programmable thermostats can offer you savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re gone 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 getting out after you’ve already paid for it. Take a few minutes to walk around your home and check your windows and doors and figure out 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 couple tips are the ideal place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to improve the efficiency of your furnace and possibly save a few bucks.
