Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Dayton

Now that chilly weather is here to stay in Dayton, most folks will start seriously thinking about turning on the furnace for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new thoughtfulness both for your comfort and for your wallet.

Energy efficiency universally affects 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 huge impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this season, think about these tips:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: arguably the most overlooked 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 may also help you keep your indoor air quality up to par.
  • Thermostat settings: adjusting your thermostat a few degrees cooler than normal 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 expenses.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like constantly adjusting your thermostat before you head out the day or when you know you won’t be around for a while? Programmable thermostats can provide you with savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re away or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as critical.
  • Weatherstripping: regardless if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep warm air from escaping after you’ve already paid for it. Take a few minutes to walk around your home and inspect your windows and doors and figure out 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 few 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.
