Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Macon10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Macon, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the forefront of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to consider annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had thought before. Energy savings comes in various shapes and forms, including: Furnace Service. Many homeowners strictly associate furnace service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees may help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy costs. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, switching furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more smoothly, making less work for your furnace. Defeat Drafts. It’s not difficult to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to use caulk and weatherstripping to close those irritating holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency. When your Air Temperature Control pro stops by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are available. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping decrease your monthly energy expenses. Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list the end-all be-all, but there are a few easy ways to help maximize your comfort when the temperatures dip in Macon.
