#1: Schedule MaintenanceWe know we sound like a broken record with this one, but it’s so important to schedule furnace maintenance each and every year. It’s a service that can help restore efficiency to your heater, because a simple tune-up may allow the components to operate more smoothly. In addition, you’ll know about any necessary heating system repairs you need to make now, rather than finding out about problems only after your heater breaks down. And you can feel confident that your furnace is operating safely after an inspection.
#2: Seal Up the DuctsThis isn’t really something you can do on your own. You’ll need professionals to assess your ductwork and determine where leaking air may contribute to inefficiency and poor heating and AC performance, then use high-quality equipment to seal the ducts. But after air leaks are sealed up—and most ventilation systems leak up to 30% of the air the system circulates through the ducts—your heater will operate much more efficiently. Air can be distributed evenly to the different rooms in the home so you’re likely to feel a lot more comfortable.
#3: Install a Wi-Fi ThermostatFrustrated by the lack of control you have over your furnace’s performance when you are not at home? Consider installing a Wi-Fi thermostat to control your heating and air conditioning systems from wherever you are. Your thermostat connects to the Wi-Fi in your home to allow you total control from an app on your phone.
