Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Bossier City11/12/2015Now that cooler weather is here to stay in Bossier City, most folks 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 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 watching for little ways to make a big impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this time of year, think about these pointers: Easy Fixes Filters: likely the most unused simple fix to help boost 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: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees cooler than typical 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 costs. 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 while? 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: 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 couple minutes to walk around your home and inspect 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 couple tips are the ideal place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to increase the efficiency of your furnace and possibly save money.
