Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Bountiful10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep cozy no matter the weather. 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 overspending on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Craig's Heating & Cooling have put together 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 in multiple ways. It can help you find small problems before they become large problems, and it can help make sure your system is operating at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a major dent on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having problems getting accustomed to the present temperature, try changing it gradually, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will swiftly adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most simple and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A clogged 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 great ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Craig's Heating & Cooling technician is over for your yearly furnace service, ask them about the efficiency level of your unit. They can assist you in deciding if it is time to explore getting 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 additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started.
