Maintenance Matters

Make Sure to Change Furnace Filters Regularly

Is your furnace filter clean? Furnace filters collect dust, pet dander and other particles and allergens, and they need to be changed regularly, usually every month. A clean air filter improves air quality in the winter and summer months when heat and air conditioning are running. And, your furnace runs more efficiently with a clean filter; a dirty filter makes your furnace work harder. You should also make sure to use the proper size furnace filter for maximum efficiency.

Did You Know?

The Thermostats of the Future Are Here

Just a few years ago, programmable thermostats were the top of the line. Today, however, it’s the smart thermostat. These wifi-enabled thermostats allow you to do things such as put sensors in multiple rooms and control them from anywhere with an app on your phone, tablet or laptop. And, some utility providers even offer rebates when you install a smart thermostat.

Smart thermostats monitor your local weather and adjust accordingly. They also offer scheduling features specific to your home, and they “learn” the exact amount of time to reach your perfect temperature and act accordingly. Filter reminders let you know when it’s time to change your furnace filter, humidity sensors tell you the humidity level in your home.

If you’re looking to implement a smart thermostat in your home, try Nest, Ecobee or Honeywell .
