Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Newton

Heating

Now that chilly weather is here to stay in Newton, most folks will start seriously thinking about switching 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 has an impact on everyone who uses a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the ecosystem depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re looking for little ways to make a big impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this season, think about these pointers:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: arguably the most overlooked 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 could also help you keep your indoor air quality in check.
  • Thermostat settings: setting your thermostat a few degrees cooler than normal is a very basic way to save a few bucks. Comfort is still key, but you may be surprised what a few degrees cooler can do for your energy bills.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like always adjusting your thermostat before you head out the day or when you know you won’t be inside for a while? Programmable thermostats can provide you with savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re not around or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as important.
  • Weatherstripping: regardless if 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 look at your windows and doors and decide if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping.

Comfort is something we’re always searching for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These handful of tips are a perfect place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to boost the efficiency of your furnace and probably save a few dollars.
