How to Make Your Furnace More Energy Efficient
Heating bills can add up in the winter months as you keep your home warm. One way to reduce your utility bills is to make your furnace more energy-efficient by using these tips:
- Install a programmable thermostat.
- Check your air ducts to make sure there aren’t any leaks or defects.
- Ensure your home is properly insulated.
- Schedule regular maintenance visits with a professional.

Common Furnace Problems
Having your furnace break down at any time of the year is an inconvenience, but having it malfunction during the winter can be even more of a hassle — and can require immediate repairs. Some common issues a furnace contractor can inspect include:
- Issues caused by a lack of maintenance.

- Wear and tear caused by aging.
- A malfunctioning thermostat that isn’t regulating the temperature inside your home.

Signs Your Heater Needs to Be Replaced

Some signs that your system needs to be replaced can include:
- If your unit is nearing the end of its life expectancy.
- Multiple repairs. If your system needs numerous – or costly – repairs.
- Increase in utility bills. If your bills are rising without an explanation it can indicate a loss of efficiency.
