Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Bloomington10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep comfortable no matter the weather. While it might not be the first thing that comes to your mind, getting an annual furnace service is an ideal way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at All Seasons Heating & A/C Co have compiled some tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you find small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make certain your system is operating at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a major dent on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting used to the current temperature, try modifying it slowly, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will easily adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most simple and most helpful things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to battle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your All Seasons Heating & A/C Co technician is over for your regular furnace service, ask them about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to check into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without affecting your comfort. It’s always the right time to start saving money. Of course there are more ways to save money, but hopefully this will get you off on the right foot.
