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

October 29, 2015

There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Thedford, it’s something we all have to account for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the front of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to schedule annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had possibly thought.

Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, like:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners strictly associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly heating bills.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Altering the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees may help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills.
  3. Filters. Another quick fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, changing furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more easily, making less work for your furnace.
  4. Defeat Drafts. It’s not hard to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to utilize caulk and weatherstripping to close those pesky holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning expert comes by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are an upgrade. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping decrease your monthly energy bills.

Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list comprehensive, but there are a few easy ways to help boost your comfort when the temperatures dip in Thedford.
