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 an ideal way to keep from spending too much on your utility bills and now is an excellent 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.
- 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 functioning at its best.
- Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a major change on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting accustomed to the new temperature, try changing it gradually, 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 valuable things a homeowner can do. A dirty 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 with drafts can cause you to lose heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are easy ways to fix drafts.
- Efficiency Check—When your Faust Air Conditioning and Heating technician is over for your yearly furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can assist you in deciding if it is time to explore getting a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without inhibiting your comfort.
There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are other ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started. If you need to schedule your regular furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 979-323-6130.
