Western Mechanical Heating Tips for Albuquerque New Mexico
Make Sure You Are Using Your Furnace Efficiently This Winter.
Do you ever think of ways that you could improve the efficiency of your home or your furnace in the winter? There are many ways to do this, and Western Mechanical’s heating experts are here to help. Western Mechanical has put together a few ideas on how you may save energy and money when heating your home this winter.
Here are some ways you can make sure your furnace is working efficiently:
Look at upgrading the insulation in your home and weatherproofing: Do you know if your home is properly insulated and sealed? If not, this could be the main cause. Have a contractor provide a home energy audit. The gas or electric company may be able to do this for you as well. Once you have the results, then you’re able to improve areas that need it.
Upgrade that old thermostat to a programmable thermostat: When you upgrade your basic thermostat to a programmable type, you can save energy by lowering your settings by 3-4 degrees when you are away or sleeping. Digital thermostats will be more accurate than the old mercury type thermostats. Keep in mind that some heating systems won’t be compatible with some models. Call Western Mechanical your local heating contractor who can help you select the right thermostat and install it for you.
Have you ever thought about a zone control system for your home: With zone control, you can heat only certain rooms of the home rather than heating the entire house. Zone control can be accomplished by retrofitting your current forced air system.
These are just a few tips, feel free to contact Western Mechanical at 505-341-4458 today to speak with a heating contractor about your home heating system needs in Albuquerque!
