Maintaining the efficiency of your furnace is easy when you call the Vancouver heating experts at Calvary Heating & Cooling. This can be difficult to do when you cannot predict weather patterns, or when the weather varies throughout the day. You may find yourself turning up the heat really high in the morning, but then in the afternoon when the sun warms up your home, you may not need the thermostat on such a high temperature. Here are some ways to maintain heating efficiency when weather patterns are inconsistent.
Another way to ensure efficient heat in your home is to make sure that you schedule routine maintenance in the fall so that a technician can help to ensure that it is working as efficiently as possible before the cold weather sets in. A programmable thermostat can also help you save energy by allowing you to program your thermostat at different temperatures at varying times of the day. Check with your Vancouver, WA heating contractor first, however. Some programmable thermostats are not designed to work with certain models of heat pumps and high-efficiency furnaces.
In addition to weather changes, humidity control is another important factor in maintaining heating efficiency. Air that is too dry may feel colder and cause you to turn up the thermostat too much and waste energy. We can also install a whole-home humidifier to help with adding the correct amount of moisture to the air inside your home.
