Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Locust10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Locust, it’s something we all have to adjust for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the forefront of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to consider annual furnace service as well, but maybe not in the way that you had possibly thought. Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, to include: Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees can help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty evident, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, changing furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more easily, making less work for your furnace. Defeat Drafts. It’s not hard to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to take advantage of caulk and weatherstripping to close those annoying holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency. When your Dynamic Comfort Solutions technician stops by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are available. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping lower your monthly energy costs. Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list the end-all be-all, but there are a few easy ways to help boost your comfort when the temperatures go down in Locust.
