Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Groves10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay cozy no matter the weather. While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Air Solutions, Inc have compiled a few tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you find small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make sure your system is operating at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a big dent on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having problems getting used to the current temperature, try changing it gradually, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will quickly adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most simple and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A dirty filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Air Solutions, Inc technician is over for your yearly furnace service, ask them about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine if it is time to explore getting a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering your comfort. It’s always the right time to start saving money. Of course there are other ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
