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

There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Bountiful, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the forefront of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the best time to think about annual furnace service as well, but maybe not in the way that you had thought before.

Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, to include:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating costs.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees may help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty clear, but when your system doesn’t have to work as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills.
  3. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, swapping 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 difficult to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to utilize caulk and weatherstripping to close those irritating holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling 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 costs.
