Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Wyandotte10/29/2015 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 first thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is an ideal way to keep from spending too much on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning have assembled a number of tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you identify small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make certain your system is operating at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a major difference on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting acclimated to the new temperature, try changing 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 most simple and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning technician is over for your yearly furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to look into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering your comfort. There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are more ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
