If your furnace is less than three years old it is likely that it is a high-efficiency model. If your system older, though, there are a few simple steps you can follow that will make your furnace perform more efficiently:
Clean or replace your air filters regularly. If your filters are blocked by dirt and debris your system will work harder to push air through them, causing more wear on your unit and costing you more money. In addition, this will improve the quality of the air in your home!
Clean all registers. Supply and return registers should be kept clean and should not be blocked.
Keep baseboards and radiators clean and make sure they are unrestricted by furniture, carpets, or drapes.
Have your system maintained and inspected annually. Regular maintenance and inspections not only cut heating costs, but they also increase the lifetime of the system, reduce breakdowns and repair costs, and cut the amount of carbon monoxide, smoke, and other pollutants pumped into the atmosphere.
Seal your ducts. In homes heated with warm-air heating, ducts should be inspected and sealed to ensure adequate airflow and eliminate loss of heated air in your home.
