Prices have notoriously gone up as inflation continues to rise. Clayton-Englewood Heating & Cooling knows how important it is for a homeowner to pinch a pretty penny where you can. For this reason, today, we will go through a list of ideas to help you utilize your energy-efficient furnace and get the most energy savings out of your home heating system.
What Temperature Do I Use In the Winter?
First off, the recommended temperature to keep your thermostat at during the winter is 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Keeping your thermostat on this setting will still keep your home nice and toasty. However, it also is an efficient enough number that still leaves room to save money on your heating bill.
Does Seasonal Maintenance Help?
We cannot emphasize enough how important it is for you to continue your seasonal maintenance on your furnace. A well-maintained furnace will efficiently heat a home. If you have not already scheduled your winter tune-up & safety check, it isn’t too late. We would be more than happy to help you get scheduled as soon as possible.
What’s the Best Kind of Thermostat?
If you do not already have an energy-efficient thermostat, it would be a good idea to look into getting one. A smart thermostat or a programmable thermostat would be great options to consider. These types of thermostats allow you to set the temperature in your home to automatically lower the degree for times you are not at home or when you are asleep at night.
Where Should My Thermostat Be Installed?
Suppose your thermostat is located near a heat source or in a spot with a lot of direct sunlight. In that case, this can affect the accuracy of your thermostat reading the temperature. For this reason, we recommend looking for an area in your home that allows airflow to circulate naturally. We also recommend the thermostat not be installed near any vents or registers as the warm air, as they can also contribute to inaccurate readings.
All of these factors can help contribute to the most energy savings when utilizing your energy-efficient furnace. Keep in mind that depending on what temperature adjustments you make in your home, your savings will vary based off that. We genuinely hope this has helped enlighten you and point you in the appropriate direction. We aim to serve you.
