Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Columbia10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay snug 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 spending too much on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Alltemp Comfort Services LLC have assembled some tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you identify small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make certain your system is running at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a major change on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having problems getting used to the current temperature, try changing it bit by bit, 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 effortless and most helpful things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases 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 fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Alltemp Comfort Services LLC 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 other ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
