10 Tips to Tune-up Your Heating System

  • Book a check-up: Schedule service every fall to keep your heating system running safely and efficiently. 
  • Inspect your detectors: All systems that burn fuel give off gases, so put a fresh battery in your carbon monoxide detector to stay safe. 
  • Clear the clutter: Keep the area around your furnace clear and be sure to keep flammable items far away from your heating system. 
  • Change or clean furnace filters: Do this to improve air quality and airflow. Refer to your owner’s manual to see how often you should do this. 
  • Wrap your tank: Add an electric water heater blanket to insulate and reduce energy loss by up to 40%.
  • Set to save: To save money on heating bills, set your thermostat to 21°C when you’re at home. Lower it about 18°C when you’re sleeping to or to 16°C when you’re away from home.
  • Blow hot air: Set your ceiling fan to spin clockwise to circulate the hot air downwards. 
  • Seal the leaks: Caulk, seal or weather strip drafts around doors and windows to reduce heating costs up to 30%.
  • Seal ducts: About 20% of your airflow is lost due to leaky or disconnected ducts. Seal holes and cracks with mastic sealant or foil tape (avoid “duct” tape as it doesn’t last long). 
  • Control humidity: Keep humidity levels at 30% to 40% so your home will feel warmer and more comfortable.
