As we enter into the New Year, many of us are taking stock of the past year and looking at what we can do better moving forward. In order to achieve your personal goals for this year, it’s important that your home be comfortable, which is why we’ve compiled a list of furnace tips, or resolutions if you will, to help you have the best 2021 possible!
Improve Your System’s Performance
The best furnace tip we can give you to improve your home comfort in 2021 is to schedule annual maintenance. Having a certified HVAC technician come and service your heating system at least once a year is imperative to ensure your furnace is running at its best. A licensed technician will clean your unit, inspect it for any damaged or worn parts, and diagnose any current issues that may be impeding your furnace’s efficiency. This is also our easiest tip because all you have to do is schedule an appointment.
We have a couple of tips that can help you improve the efficiency of your furnace in 2021 and for years to come, and as a bonus, they’ll also save you money. One of the best ways to improve the efficiency of your unit is to stay on top of filter maintenance. You should change your filter at least every 90 days, but if you aren’t sure when you changed it last, or it looks dirty, start the new year off right with a clean filter. You can also install a programmable thermostat to help you improve the efficiency of your furnace. A programmable thermostat allows you to reduce the temperature by a few degrees at night when you’re sleeping, or during the day when you’re out, which will reduce the wear and tear on your unit and significantly decrease your monthly bills.
Reduce Your Footprint
With every passing year, we are all trying to do more to protect the planet, and this furnace tip for 2021 aims to help you do exactly that. If your furnace is more than 10-15 years old, it could be time to upgrade to a new high-efficiency unit. Upgrading your furnace will not only benefit the environment by not using as much energy, but it will also benefit your wallet. The money a high-efficiency unit will save you on your monthly bills adds up, and over the course of a few years, your new furnace will start to pay for itself.
