Heating System Tune-up
Have a professional tune-up your heating system if it has not received one in the last year. If your system is more than 15 years old consider replacing it with a high efficiency system or heat pump. You may need to seal leaky ducts or insulate supply and return pipes on boilers.
During the warmer months, you can turn off the pilot light on boilers or furnaces that are used solely for home heating, not hot water. To boost efficiency, you can clean registers and clean or change air filters on furnaces, install radiator reflectors to avoid unnecessary heat transfer from the radiator to the adjacent exterior wall. Also consider shutting the vent damper during the off cycle to prevent heat from being drawn up the flue.
By installing zone-control radiators, save even more. Here is a checklist to help monitor your 'tune-up' pro: Inspect the filter and change or clean it as needed, check all electrical components and thermostat controls, oil the motors, and inspect heat exchanger for cracks since one in the heat exchanger will introduce dangerous carbon monoxide. Plus, check air flow, and if diminished, clean the evaporator coil, and check the air fuel mixture.
The ROI Calculation is based on a 'tune-up' and saving about $45 a month over 4 months of the winter.
Good to Know: Check the furnace Air Filter Seating - Make sure that it is sitting flush in the s...
