Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Fort Worth

Heating

Now that chilly weather is here to stay in Fort Worth, most people will start truly thinking about switching on the furnace for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new thoughtfulness both for your comfort and for your pocket book.

Energy efficiency universally affects everyone who operates a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on the environment 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 time of year, consider these simple fixes:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: probably 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 can also help you keep your indoor air quality in check.
  • Thermostat settings: dialing your thermostat a few degrees cooler than typical is a very easy way to save a few dollars. Comfort is still paramount, but you may be surprised what a couple degrees cooler can do for your energy bills.
  • 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 bit? Programmable thermostats can leave 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: whether it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep warm air from escaping after you’ve already paid for it. Take a couple minutes to walk around your home and inspect your windows and doors and decide 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 increase the efficiency of your furnace and potentially save a few bucks.
