Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Ballwin10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to remain comfortable no matter the weather. While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly furnace service is a great way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning have compiled a number of tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you find small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make sure your system is running at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a major dent on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting accustomed to the present temperature, try changing it bit by bit, 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 easiest and most valuable 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 could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are easy ways to battle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Holiday Heating & Air Conditioning technician is over for your yearly furnace service, inquire 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 additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
