Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Dallas

Now that colder weather is here to stay in Dallas, most homeowners will start seriously thinking about switching on the furnace for the foreseeable future. With that flip of the switch comes new consideration both for your comfort and for your check book.

Energy efficiency universally impacts everyone who uses 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, consider these pointers:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: likely the most overlooked 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 may also help you keep your indoor air quality high.
  • Thermostat settings: setting your thermostat a few degrees cooler than normal is a very basic way to save a few dollars. Comfort is still key, but you may be surprised what a few degrees cooler can do for your energy expenses.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like constantly adjusting your thermostat before you leave for the day or when you know you won’t be inside for an extended period? Programmable thermostats can offer you savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re away or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as important.
  • Weatherstripping: no matter 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 little time 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 searching 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 potentially save money.
