FURNACE ENERGY TIPS
* Keep your furnace clean, lubricated and properly adjusted with annual maintenance. If your furnace is working at peak efficiency it will use less energy to operate.
* Clean or replace the filter every 1-2 months-a dirty fileter reduces the airflow and forces the furnace to work longer to heat your home.
* Consider purchasing a new ENERGY STAR certified furnace with a variable speed motor. An average home can save up to $530 in natural gas and electrical costs annually. NICOR is offering rebates depending on qualifications. Now is a great time to upgrade efficiencies
