While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is a great way to keep from spending too much on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Air Temperature Control have assembled a number of tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you catch 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 even a couple degrees can make a major difference on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting used to the new temperature, try adjusting 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 effortless and most helpful things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors with drafts can cause you to lose heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are easy ways to tackle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Air Temperature Control technician is over for your yearly furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can assist you in deciding if it is time to look into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering your comfort. There’s never a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are more ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started.
