Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Humble10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay 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 fantastic way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Arrings A/C & Heating have compiled some 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 large problems, and it can help ensure your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a big dent on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting acclimated to the new temperature, try modifying it slowly, 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 simple and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through freely, 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 great ways to battle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Arrings A/C & Heating technician is over for your annual furnace service, ask them about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine if it is time to explore getting a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering 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.
