Furnace Tips for your Vancouver / Portland Area

Having an old outdated furnace is wasting money! As much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. So making smart decisions about your home’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems can have a big effect on your utility bills — and your comfort.

Change Your Air Filter Regularly

Check your filter every month, especially during heavy use months (winter and summer).

Tune Up Your HVAC Equipment Yearly

Just as a tune-up for your car can improve your gas mileage, a yearly tune-up of your heating and cooling system can improve efficiency and comfort.

Install A Programmable Thermostat

Through proper use of pre-programmed settings, a programmable thermostat can save you about $180 every year in energy costs.

Seal Your Heating and Cooling Ducts

Ducts that move air to-and-from a forced air furnace, central air conditioner, or heat pump are often big energy wasters. Sealing and insulating ducts can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 20% and sometimes much more.

When is it time for a change?

  • Are some of your rooms too hot or too cold?
  • Does your home have humidity problems and/or excessive dust?
  • Is your cooling system noisy?
  • Does your equipment need frequent repairs?
  • Does your energy bill keep rising?
  • Is your heating & cooling system 12 or more years old?
  • Do you leave your thermostat on one constant temp?

By installing a Hybrid Home Comfort System can reduce your heating bills by 33% & your cooling bills by 64%. Plus by improving your home and selecting a high efficiency system you can receive a tax rebate that would be giving you a system for half the amount you would normally pay.
