Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Carson City

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 fantastic 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 put together a few tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we previously 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 ensure your system is functioning at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a few 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 accustomed to the current temperature, try changing it gradually, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will quickly adjust to the new temperature.
  3. 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.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to tackle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Anderson Heating & A/C 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 check 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 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 775-230-7628.
