Your Furnace, Love it or Leave it!

Brrr, baby it’s cold inside!┬áIt’s shaping up to be one of the coldest Greeley winters in years, did your home stay warm? Is your furnace working at top efficiency? If you are showing your furnace the love and it’s still not performing, then it might be time to leave it!

  1. Has your furnace been inspected by a Greeley Furnace Heating and Air technician and tuned up annually to ensure your heating system is at peak efficiency?
  2. Keep the area around the furnace so that the airflow is not restricted.
  3. Check your furnace filter monthly to make sure airflow isn’t restricted causing a loss of efficiency or even a breakdown. The Department of Energy says a clogged filter can increase energy bills by up to 15%!
  4. Keep your thermostat in one setting, turning it up or down will result in more energy being used. Consider a programmable thermostat to manage your home climate.
  5. If your furnace is 12 years or older, consider replacing it with a high-efficiency system. If you plan on staying in your home for a few years the investment will pay off in lower heating bills, more comfort, and a higher property value.
