Run Your Furnace Efficientlly This Winter

We all depend on our home heating systems in the winter months. No one wants to be caught off guard if the furnace stops working on one of our cold Wisconsin winter nights. Helping your furnace run efficiently will decrease the likelihood of a major breakdown and also help to save energy and save you money.

  • Having your furnace cleaned and checked at the beginning of the season before you really need it will help your furnace run more efficiently and can alert you to minor problems before they become major issues.
  • Changing your furnace filter regularly helps keep the air flowing in your home so your furnace doesn’t have to work overtime to keep you and your family warm.
  • Wisconsin Focus on Energy, The Department of Energy & Manufacturers recommends annual maintenance. Manufacturers also require annual maintenance on your furnace and air conditioner as part of the terms of your warranty. Help your furnace out and save money! In the colder months open curtains and blinds. Let the sun in and help heat your home.
  • Set your thermostat to a lower temperature while you are away or sleeping. Have your thermostat work for you, we offer several types of programmable thermostats. According to Wisconsin Focus on Energy reducing your thermostat by 1 degree for 8 hours will save you 1% on your heating bill! Do that during the work week and while you’re sleeping and that can be quite a savings.
