Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Locust10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep cozy 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 spending too much on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Dynamic Comfort Solutions have put together a few tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you identify small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make certain your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a big change on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having trouble getting acclimated to the new temperature, try modifying it bit by bit, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will swiftly adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the easiest and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, 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 easy ways to tackle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Dynamic Comfort Solutions technician is over for your annual furnace service, ask them about the efficiency level of your unit. They can assist you in deciding if it is time to look 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 more ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started.
