Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Kennesaw and surrounding areas

Heating

Now that chilly weather is here to stay in Kennesaw and surrounding areas, most people will start seriously thinking about flipping on the furnace for the upcoming months. With that flip of the switch comes new consideration both for your comfort and for your wallet.

Energy efficiency universally has an impact on everyone who operates a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on nature 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, ponder these tips:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: arguably the most forgotten simple fix to help impact the energy efficiency of your furnace, exchanging filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it can also help you keep your indoor air quality up to par.
  • Thermostat settings: dialing your thermostat a few degrees cooler than usual is a very simple way to save money. Comfort is still important, but you may be surprised what a few degrees cooler can do for your energy expenses.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like always adjusting your thermostat before you leave for the day or when you know you won’t be inside for an extended period? Programmable thermostats can leave you with savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re gone or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as critical.
  • Weatherstripping: whether 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 little time to walk around your home and inspect your windows and doors and decide 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 handful of tips are a great place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to increase the efficiency of your furnace and possibly save a few bucks.
