If turning on your gas furnace makes you cringe in anticipation of high energy costs, there are many things that can be done to improve the efficiency of the gas furnace which will reduce your energy bills. The easiest step to take is to regularly upgrade the gas furnace filter. The gas furnace filter removes airborne particles that can be harmful to the gas furnace. If the gas furnace filter isn’t upgraded regularly, dust & other pollutants restricting airflow to the gas furnace makes it work harder, causing reduced efficiency. Next, it is highly proposed that a programmable control unit be installed in the home. Heating your apartment at the same temperature while you’re away from the apartment as when you are apartment is wasteful. Manually turning the control unit down a few degrees before leaving the apartment for an extended stage can be a hassle. A programmable control unit automatically adjusts the temperature in your apartment based on the afternoon & time, to keep you sizzling & save you cash. Annual gas furnace tune-ups are seriously crucial if reducing energy bills is your objective, but just like proper oil changes for your vehicle, annual tune-ups keep your gas furnace running efficiently while extending the life of the system. Without proper tune ups, your gas furnace can experience a shortened life span, & costly & preventable break downs. Also, zoning your Heating, Ventilation, & A/C system allows for odd zones in your apartment to be heated & cooled to odd temperatures. This saves cash & improves the efficiency by heating your apartment to more even temperatures. Lastly, old, worn, or i’m officially sealed ducts can result in up to 20% of your heated air escaping on its way from your gas furnace into your home. By taking the time to have your air duct professionally sealed, less of your heated air will escape.
