Five Great Ways to Make Your Furnace More Efficient

5 Great Ways to Make Your Furnace More Efficient | Forquer Heating & Cooling

Fall is here and before you know it, winter will be upon us. That means it will soon be time to run your furnace. Anyone who has had to rely on a furnace for heating a home can attest to how expensive it can be. One way to cut down on these costs is to have a furnace that runs efficiently. Although that can seem like a daunting task, it is not. All you need to do is follow these simple guidelines.

Replace the filter

The furnace filter has an important job. It removes the airborne particles that can make your furnace work poorly. When these particles build up over time it allows dust, dirt and other contaminants to restrict airflow and makes your furnace work harder than necessary.

Get an annual tune-up

Your furnace needs an annual tune up to keep it working at its optimal level. Having a trained professional look at your furnace every year will extend the life of your heating system and prevent the need for expensive repairs.

Seal your air ducts

When air ducts are not properly sealed, it allows warm air to escape, making the indoor temperature of your home colder than it needs to be. When they are properly sealed, less warm air escapes and the air temperature can remain at a more comfortable level without having to turn the furnace up. While you have someone in your home to seal your air ducts, have them check to make sure the attic and windows are also properly insulated to prevent warm air loss as well.

Use a zoned heating system

Using a zoned heating system will allow different sections of your home to be heated and cooled to different temperatures. When you heat your home in this manner, it heats more evenly, the furnace does not have to work as hard, and it eliminates hot and cold spots in the home. 

Buy a high-efficiency furnace

If your current furnace is old and ready to be replaced, consider purchasing a high-efficiency furnace. High-efficiency furnaces are quieter, have better airflow, and have less negative impact on the environment

This is the right time of year to start thinking about how well your furnace is going to heat your home during the upcoming winter. If your furnace is ready for a tune-up or if you are ready to upgrade to a new high-efficiency furnace, contact the experts at Forquer Heating. We are here to help you.
