How to Keep Your Furnace Efficient

The weather in Colorado is getting colder by the day, and if you’re like us, then you’ve been enjoying your heater for the past few weeks. In today’s post, we’ll provide you with a few tips that can help you keep your furnace efficient and working well this winter. If you need to schedule furnace maintenance or furnace repairs in Denver, Henderson, or any of the surrounding areas, then get in touch with a member of Pure Air Solutions!

Schedule Furnace Maintenance

Much like regular vehicle maintenance can prevent a catastrophic problem from occurring on the road, investing in regular furnace maintenance can help you prevent your heater from breaking down in the middle of the night. It’s best to have furnace maintenance performed before winter begins, but any time is better than never. Pure Air Solutions proudly offers a preventative HVAC maintenance program that can help you keep your heating and cooling system working well throughout the year. You can learn more about the program here, and you can reach out to us through our website to sign up!

Replace Your Filter 

Replacing your furnace filter can be a lot like flossing your teeth. You know you should be doing it, but you somehow never seem to have the time. While we know that it can be hard to remember to replace your filter, it’s incredibly important that you do. The filter collects dust, dirt, and other contaminants that would otherwise be distributed throughout your home. Once it’s saturated, however, these particles are free to flow throughout your home. This can often lead to allergies and other respiratory problems, in addition to reduced efficiency.

You can tell if your filter needs to be replaced by checking it against a fresh filter. If it’s darker in color and full of dust, hair, and other less-than-appealing substances, then it’s probably time for a new one. Alternatively, you can get into the habit of changing your filter every three months to ensure that you won’t forget about it. You won’t even have to bother with your filter if you sign up for our HVAC maintenance program, as our friendly technicians will take care of it for you!

Get a Better Thermostat

Contemporary thermostats can help you keep your energy bills low while also protecting your furnace from unnecessary use. Programmable thermostats allow you to plan for times when you’re not home, which means that you’re only using your furnace when you need it. This means that you can turn the air on 30 minutes before you come home from work, preventing it from heating your entire home throughout the day. Keeping your furnace on throughout the day creates more wear and tear, and you may even have to spend more on furnace repairs over the span of several years.
