Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Marshall10/29/2015 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 yearly furnace service is an ideal way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at All Elements Heating & Air LLC have put together some tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you catch small problems before they become large problems, and it can help ensure your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a big dent on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting acclimated to the current temperature, try adjusting it bit by bit, 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 freely, 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 battle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your All Elements Heating & Air LLC technician is over for your regular furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to explore getting 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 additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
