Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Humble10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep comfortable no matter the weather. While it might not be the initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is an ideal way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Air Houston Mechanical LLC have assembled some tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you catch small problems before they become large problems, and it can help ensure your system is operating at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a huge difference 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 present temperature, try modifying it gradually, 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 easiest and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Air Houston Mechanical LLC technician is over for your regular furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to explore getting a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without inhibiting 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.
