5 Tips To Improve Furnace Efficiency

As the winter months gradually roll in, you will have to rely on your furnace to keep your home warm. The last thing you would want is to have a heater that is either not working or inefficient. Before winter hits full swing, it is essential to improve the efficiency of your furnace by considering these five tips.

1. Replacing the Furnace Filter

One of the key steps to tune-up your furnace this winter is to replace the furnace filter as often as the maintenance experts recommend. Our experts from Alps Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., serving Anaheim and Orange County, recommend replacing the furnace filters every three months. We can perform this task for you.

2. Sealing the Air Ducts

Dilapidated and worn-out air ducts can render the thermostat system in your home ineffective. To prevent such a problem from worsening, it is important to consider sealing the air ducts and insulating to prevent loss of heat. Doing so also saves your furnace and air conditioning systems from undergoing progressive damage.

3. Insulating Your House

The hot air that the furnace creates rises to the ceiling. If your roof is not well-insulated or if it has openings, the air escapes into the atmosphere. In fact, insulating your house helps retain such air within, thereby increasing the efficiency of your furnace in keeping your house warm.

4. Cleaning the Furnace Registers

If your furnace is working overtime to heat your home accordingly, then the registers progressively get coated with dust. To prevent this from affecting the functionality of your furnace, it is important to regularly clean the registers to free them from any dust or insulation.

5. Weatherproofing Your House

In the adverse weather conditions of winter, there is no better way of helping supplement your furnace than considering weatherproofing your house. It also reduces the amount of time that your furnace will have to keep running.
