Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Carson City10/29/2015 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 annual furnace service is a great way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Anderson Heating & A/C have assembled a few 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 find small problems before they become big problems, and it can help ensure your system is running at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a big 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 current temperature, try changing 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 dirty filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to tackle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Anderson Heating & A/C 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 look into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without inhibiting 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 get you off on the right foot.
