It’s still an important time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy tips for you to wholly receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency. Change Your Furnace Filter You’ve heard this frequently, but changing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® advises swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow better through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your home.
