You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep cozy no matter the weather. While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is an ideal way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning have put together a few 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 big problems, and it can help make certain your system is functioning at its best.
- Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a major change 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 present temperature, try adjusting 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 effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases your utility bills.
- Address Drafts—Windows and doors with drafts can cause you to lose heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to fix drafts.
- Efficiency Check—When your Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning technician is over for your regular furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can assist you in deciding if it is time to explore getting a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering your comfort.
There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are other ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need. If you need to schedule your regular furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 360-255-5857.
