Finding the right heating system for your home is a great start, but there’s more to efficiency than simply deciding whether you should choose a furnace or a heat pump. You can help improve your home’s energy footprint further by making a few adjustments here and there.
With over two decades of experience in air conditioning, heat pump and furnace service, repair and maintenance, All Climate Heating and Air Conditioning has you covered. Here are our best tips on how to make your heating system more efficient:
Before the colder months kick in, have a professional carry out an overall inspection of your heating system. A full assessment will give you valuable insight about potential problems, leakages and other factors that can greatly affect your system’s efficiency.
All Climate Heating and Air Conditioning offers different types of heat pump or furnace service to help your system get ready for the season.
Our furnace service specialists can help you dig deeper into some of your system’s problems, but there are a few visual clues that can help you find out whether you may need to call in for repairs. Knowing the common symptoms of a malfunctioning heating system is useful.
For example, have you noticed a sudden and odd increase in your energy bill? This may mean your heating isn’t as efficient as before. Do you hear strange noises from the unit? Do you feel like it’s not as warm as it used to be? Is the furnace covered in dust and soot? These are all tell-tale signs of potential problems that must be addressed quickly to avoid exacerbating them.
Getting professional furnace service is a start, but your heating system’s efficiency doesn’t end with the unit and the ductwork alone. There are plenty of preparations you can do with other parts of your home to help make the job easier for your heating.
Check your doors and windows for possible leaks. Make sure that these areas are weatherized with proper strips and caulk to ensure that heat does not escape. Consider putting up insulated curtains on your windows as well, to help prevent more heat from dissipating through the windows.
