If you drive a car, you know that oil changes are a must. You wouldn’t dream of driving around with dirty oil in your engine—and your heating and cooling system is no different.

How your furnace impacts energy efficiency

One of the most avoidable issues that stops your Furnace from performing at its full potential is keeping the fan setting “on” constantly. This results in the furnace blowing cold air since heaters are not designed to pump hot air continuously. They are designed to reach an optimum temperature and take breaks until the temperature starts falling below the setting on the Thermostat.

To ensure this does not happen, switch the fan setting to “auto” so the fan system will blow hot air only when it is needed.

A common issue with all Furnace units is an uneven amount of warm air circulating through your home. This can come down to something as simple as needing to clean the Furnace filter. A clogged filter reduces the amount of airflow from the unit and not cleaning the filter often enough can lead to further issues the longer it is left unattended.

If this doesn’t fix the problem, the next step would be to replace the filter. Never underestimate how vital a clean and functional filter is to your Furnace.

The condensate lines in your Furnace must be kept clean and open. They play a crucial role in draining water away from the unit. If the lines are clogged with an excess buildup of dirt and debris, this can lead to the system no longer pumping warm air through your home. By getting regular inspections carried out by our HVAC specialists at Sterling Plumbing & Heating, you will avoid unnecessary repairs.

Natural gas furnaces require regular cleaning to ensure the longevity of the system. A dirty gas valve will cause it to become less efficient or shut down completely. If you have an older gas Furnace, scheduling regular maintenance and servicing will extend the life of your gas valve and it will save you a lot of money by avoiding unnecessary repairs or replacement parts.

When you start noticing that your Furnace is not producing as much warm air as it should, this could mean the burners are clogged. If the burners are indeed clogged this will drain the fuel supply to efficiently run your Furnace system. Calling our heating specialists at Sterling Plumbing & Heating for maintenance and servicing is the best solution to fix this problem. Furnace burners should only be attended to by the professionals.

If problems persist and your Furnace is not running as efficiently as it should, give us a call and our heating specialists at Sterling Plumbing & Heating will be happy to get your furnace running again.

As time goes on, it is common that a furnace can become less efficient. The good news is that the best way to avoid losing efficiency is to stay up to date with having the furnace serviced. This way, your energy bill should not increase due to a compromised furnace. At Sterling Plumbing & Heating, we recommend annual furnace maintenance to ensure that the unit is clean and free of any issues.

One key factor for a well run furnace is a clean air filter. A clean air filter is important for more than one reason. By replacing the filter monthly, the air quality in your home or business will improve significantly. Keep in mind that if you have pets, you may need to change your furnace air filter more frequently than someone who does not. Ultimately, your furnace has to work harder when the air filter is dirty. Therefore replacing the filter regularly is one of the best ways to maintain the efficiency of the furnace unit and your home or business.

Another factor that could contribute to poor furnace efficiency is ductwork leaks. If the ducts have leaks or poor connections, it will be difficult for the air to move through the furnace. A large portion of your energy usage will come from your heating system during the winter which is why these factors are important to consider.

DISCLAIMER: While some furnace fixes may be more straightforward than others, we do not advise that you attempt this work without a professional. Due to the nature of furnaces and the potential of gas line leaks, tampering with the unit can be extremely dangerous. Never store combustible materials near your furnace as this can create the chance of a fire or explosion.

I would give these guys a 7 out of 5 if I could. I knew when the were coming, they updated they would be early and showed up. VERY professional, checked everything, fixed what needed fixing and told me what to watch out for. They could have done more, but advised it wasn’t necessary. Were very clean when they worked and after they were gone everything was cleaned up. Will I use them again, absolutely!!!
