Tips to Improve Furnace Efficiency in Your Home

Monday, February 4th, 2013

Think of how much you use your furnace during the winter in Savannah. You probably use it every day to keep warm. That’s why many people are looking for ways to improve the efficiency of their furnace. We thought that it would be helpful for our customers in Savannah if we put together a short list of some ways to improve the efficiency of their furnace this winter.

Check the Insulation in Your Savannah Home

Insulation is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to heat loss. When you spend money buying the fuel to heat your home, you want to make sure that you keep as much of it in your home as possible. That’s exactly what insulation is designed to do. But if you have old or deteriorating insulation, you might be leaking heat. The first place to check is your attic. The floor of the attic is the ceiling of your home. As heat rises, it will leak through your ceiling and into the attic. Check the insulation on the floor of the attic to see if it is thin or if there are gaps between it and the ceiling joists.

Check the Ducts

The ducts in your home are like the veins of your furnace. They carry the heat to each of the rooms that need it. If your ducts are old, there may holes or cracks in them. As the heated air travels through the ducts, it can start to leak out through the gaps. Also, over time your ducts can shift and form unnecessary bends and pinches. This can reduce the efficiency of your furnace because it makes it harder for the furnaces to push the air through the ducts.

Regular Maintenance

One of the best ways to make sure that your furnace is working at peak efficiency is to have it regularly maintained by a professional heating technician. With regular maintenance, small repairs can be caught early before they turn into large, expensive repairs. During a maintenance visit to your home in Savannah, the technician will also replace any worn parts like fan belts and lubricate other moving parts like fan bearings. All of these things can potentially increase the overall efficiency of your furnace system.

If you’re interested in having professional maintenance performed on your furnace in Savannah, then call the experts at AAction Air. We would love to help you increase the efficiency and extend the life of your furnace. Give us a call today!
