While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is a great way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Superior Comfort Systems have assembled a number of tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you catch small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make certain your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a big difference on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having trouble getting acclimated to the current temperature, try modifying it gradually, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will easily 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 clogged filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives 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 tackle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Superior Comfort Systems technician is over for your yearly furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine 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 more ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started.
