Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Humble

Now that chilly weather is here to stay in Humble, most folks will start truly 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 pocket book.

Energy efficiency universally affects everyone who runs a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on nature depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re searching for little ways to make a huge impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this year, ponder these simple fixes:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: arguably the most forgotten 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 simple 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 constantly adjusting your thermostat before you leave for the day or when you know you won’t be home for a bit? Programmable thermostats can leave 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 getting 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 determine 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 the ideal 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.
