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

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 annual furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating have compiled some 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 find small problems before they become large problems, and it can help make certain your system is operating at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a huge change on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having problems getting used to the new 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 effortless and most helpful things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases 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 easy ways to battle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Faust Air Conditioning and Heating technician is over for your annual furnace service, ask them 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.

There’s never a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need. If you need to schedule your annual furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 979-323-6130.
