Three Ways to Know for Sure That Your Heating Is Working Efficiently


Determining if your heating and air conditioning system is working as efficiently as possible requires a few simple steps.

If you’re not sure if your heating and air conditioning system is working the way it should, you could be wasting money. Here are several ways you can see if your heater is working as efficiently as it should:

Install a Clean Air Filter

It doesn’t matter how efficient your furnace and air handler are if the air filter is dirty. A clogged air filter acts as like a plug in your ductwork. If the filter isn't clean, it could drastically reduce the ability of your heater to warm your home or office. By installing a clean filter, you know that the maximum amount of air is flowing through your ductwork.

Calibrate Your Thermostat

A thermostat serves as a switch for your HVAC system. If the thermostat can't detect the indoor temperature accurately, it won't turn on or shut off when it should. This means your heater will not do enough to keep it at the desired temperature. The consequence is that your heater will not work as efficiently as it should. By calibrating your thermostat, you can make sure the heat comes on or turns off as intended.

Get Regular Maintenance

The best and easiest way to ensure maximum efficiency of your heater is to have an expert HVAC technician come out and do a routine inspection. The technician can identify any problem areas and make small repairs or changes to your heater before they become serious problems or reduce your efficiency even further. The technician will also conduct regular maintenance, such as replacing air filters and checking the wiring.
