How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Even though it’s spring, we could still see more cold temps. It’s still a great time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy recommendations for you to wholly receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but replacing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® advises swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently circulate air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working overtime, 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 Air Concepts of Middle Georgia. We can assist you.
