Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Rock Hill11/12/2015 It’s getting colder in Rock Hill, which means your furnace will be working overtime for you for the next few months. It’ll keep you comfy and warm, but that could come with a high price tag. How efficient is your furnace? The energy efficiency of your furnace affects everything from your comfort to your wallet to our environment. Because energy efficiency is so important to so many things, we’ve collected some simple tips for you that can help you keep your furnace working efficiently: Change your furnace filter: people forget to check and change their furnace filters often enough, which is unfortunate because this is most likely the easiest thing you can do to keep your furnace running efficiently and help improve your indoor air quality. Simply set a reminder to check it regularly and change it if it’s getting dirty. Adjust your thermostat settings: turning your thermostat down just a few degrees below where you normally have it can help you save money on your heating bill without damaging your comfort. Use a programmable thermostat: if you don’t want the trouble of changing your thermostat every day or trying to remember to set it before a vacation, you’d benefit from a programmable thermostat. It can help you save money by automatically lowering the temperature in your home when you’re gone or when you’re sleeping. Install weatherstripping: sealing around your doors and windows can help keep warm air inside your home. Check your doors and windows and install new weatherstripping where needed and re-caulk any areas that need it. Everyone likes to be comfortable, no matter what the weather is like outside. Use these tips to make your home comfort more affordable by improving the efficiency of your furnace.
