Tips for Efficient Heating

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Although efficient cooling is much more recognized as a way of cutting costs during the long summer, efficient heating is no less important. There are a few ways you can heat your Waynesville, NC home more efficiently, which helps both your wallet and the environment. For further information, please contact Premier Indoor Comfort Systems, serving all of Atlanta, GA.

One of the many ways to save energy in your home is to upgrade your heating system to a more recent and highly-efficient model. These days you can install a heater with an AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating of up to 98%, which means that there is only a 2% of energy loss during the heat conversion and distribution process. That said, how much energy you save ultimately depends on the quality of your home’s ductwork and insulation. Alternatively, ductless mini split heaters offer high-efficiency units that suspend from the ceiling or hang high on a wall. Premier offers Mitsubishi ductless systems, which are both highly-efficient and use non-ozone depleting refrigerant.

But there are still other less expensive ways to get more from your existing system. An Waynesville, NC heating expert may recommend servicing several parts of your heating system to maximize the energy efficiency of your home. Scheduling a routine preventive maintenance plan is the first step. Cleaning and replacing your air filter, ensuring that your ductwork is sealed properly and does not leak are parts of a high-efficiency program aimed at minimizing your energy use. Another option is to ask for the installation of a programmable thermostat. This device allows you to further customize the temperature of your home by scheduling times of the day, and days of the week, to automatically adjust the temperature.

Remember that the key to energy-efficient heating is the proper installation and maintenance of your heating system. Call a local Waynesville, NC heating expert at Premier Indoor Comfort Systems.

While maintenance is a great way to keep your heating system working well. But sometimes you may need to replace it. Here are a few of the things that can indicate that you need to replace your heating system.

  • Age – If your heating system is over 10 years old and you start to notice that you need heating repairs, it might make more sense to replace your heating system.
  • Furnace rattling – If your furnace is making a rattling noise, it can mean that you just need to tighten a few screws on the case. However, it can also mean that your heat exchanger is cracked. Your heat exchanger is responsible for heating up the air in your home but it is also responsible for exhausting the combustion gases that result from burning gas. Those gases include carbon monoxide which is deadly to humans in high enough quantities.
  • Wiggling or yellow flames – If you notice that the flames on the burner of your furnace is dancing, wiggling or yellow, it could also indicate that your heat exchanger is cracked. Make sure that you keep an eye on the flames of your burner.
