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 annual furnace service is a great way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning have put together some 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 large problems, and it can help make certain your system is functioning at its best.
- Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a huge dent on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having trouble getting accustomed to the new 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 easiest and most helpful things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases your utility bills.
- Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to tackle drafts.
- Efficiency Check—When your Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning technician is over for your regular furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to look into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without inhibiting your comfort.
There isn’t a bad 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. If you need to schedule your annual furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 512-355-1482.
