6 Ways to Improve Heating System Efficiency

If you have an older heating system, it may be time to consider upgrading to a more efficient model. Newer heating systems are much more energy-efficient than older models, so they can help you save money on your energy bills. Air Rite is the leading provider of heating repair Atascadero, and surrounding areas. We have a team of certified professionals who are experts in heating system efficiency. If you’re interested in upgrading your system or improving its efficiency, contact us today.

The following are 6 ways to improve heating system efficiency:

  • Preventive maintenance appointments: Make time to perform routine maintenance on your heating system to keep it operating efficiently. Make sure that all wall, ceiling, or floor vents are open and free from obstructions in addition to changing the air filter on a regular basis. It’s important to ensure that nothing is blocking air vents, which would reduce the effectiveness of the heating system.
  • Update the air filter: One of the most important ways to ensure your heating system is running efficiently is to change the air filter. A clogged or dirty air filter can restrict airflow and cause your system to work harder, which can lead to higher energy bills. Check and change your air filter regularly to keep your system running smoothly.
  • Install a programmable thermostat: A programmable thermostat can help you save money by allowing you to set different temperatures for different times of the day. For example, you can set the temperature lower when you’re away from home or asleep and raise it when you need it most.
  • Seal air leaks: Air leaks around doors and windows can cause your heating system to work harder than it needs to. Sealing these leaks can help improve your home’s energy efficiency and reduce your energy bills.
  • Invest in insulation: By adding insulation to your attic or walls, you can prevent heat from escaping, and in turn, make your heating system more efficient. This is a particularly good idea if you live in an older home with less insulation. Though it can be a big task, adding insulation is ultimately worthwhile in the long run.
  • Upgrade an Old System: It could be time to replace your old furnace or heat pump if it has been operating inefficiently and is more than ten years old. You can be confident that new heating systems will help you generate power for years to come since they are complying with national efficiency standards. To ensure you buy the proper size and model heating system for your home, contact us today.

The cost-effective on-and-off cycle programs used by high-efficiency home heating systems make them last longer since there is less wear and tear. High-efficiency systems eliminate unwanted moisture and withstand unpleasant irritants like chemical buildup, extending the life of the system and fostering a healthier atmosphere for you and your family.

As the caretaker for a senior gentleman in Atascadero, I was concerned for his health and safety during a recent cold snap. I called Air Rite, explained the situation and they made getting my patient’s needs taken care of a priority. The service technician was knowledgeable and professional, going above and beyond and taking the time to listen to my patient’s own diagnosis. The heating repair was completed within an hour and the price was right. I will recommend Air Rite Heating and Cooling to both my patients and my friends.

“Let me tell you why this company should have “10” stars. First, you need to know we had attempted to get our forced air heating fixed by another company from Templeton (posted a review on their site). After waiting several days for the other company to return after their initial visit (said they needed to order a part). After many cold days without even a call back we called “Air Rite” in Atascadero. We spoke with Rick (the owner of the company) and explained our dilemma and frustration with our attempt to get it fixed. He understood and said a ...

“Great service at a great price. When my parents needed an entirely new heater system Air Rite took care of it. When our heater recently went out Air Rite took care of it. Arnie came out diagnosed the problem and had us back up and running in no time. Great doing business with a small family-owned business. Highly recommend!”

“Air Rite certainly did right by me! Our 20 year old HVAC system, which had been nursed along for the last few years, finally gave up the ghost. Arne came out and assessed the situation and recommended a reasonably priced replacement system. This morning he sent his team of Cameron, Daniel, David, and Keith, and they went to work. Before 3:00 p.m. on this wickedly hot day in the North County (105°+), they got our new furnace and air conditioning units installed, up, and running. Thank you, Air Rite!”

“We needed to have our AC unit serviced and called Air Rite. The woman who works in the office was attentive and kind. They were really busy because it has been so hot but she let us know the soonest they could send someone out. When the technician arrived he was kind and courteous. He went above and beyond to clean out the leaves that were in our unit and made it ready for summer. Thanks, Air Rite!”
