When one of our qualified technician tunes your system, the technician will test the efficiency levels of as part of this visit. The technician can also pinpoint areas in which you can improve your home. Weatherization doesn’t just involve sealing and insulating. Having adequate ventilation and airflow is also important in maintaining efficiency. This is why we recommend that you change or clean your air filters often during the winter.
In addition to routine maintenance, another small upgrade is switching out your old dial thermostat with a new digital programmable thermostat. The old dial thermostats are probably what most people are familiar with. They use mercury to measure the temperature, which is why you have to dispose of them in a way that is approved by your local waste facility.
It’s best to have a heating professional install any type of new thermostat since anyone who doesn’t have experience installing heating equipment could damage the equipment or undergo personal injury. A professional will also know how to dispose of the old thermostat. Never throw out a mercury thermostat without checking with the local codes first.
