Tip #5 of 5 Easy Ways to Keep Your Furnace Happy

At Home

Reduce use even when you’re home.

Programmable thermostats can be used to save energy and make your furnace work less hard even when the home is occupied. When outside air is very cold, your furnace has to work harder to keep inside air warm. By lowering your thermostat’s set temperature at night, you can reduce the load on your furnace. And since everyone’s asleep, the temperature difference won’t be felt as much.

Smarter thermostats make sense

Many intelligent programmable thermostats can further reduce the load on your furnace by ramping the temperature up gradually over time, instead of forcing the furnace to do all of its work at once. Learn more about keeping your furnace healthy from your local Lennox Dealer.
