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

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep snug no matter the weather. While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly 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 Scott Temperature have assembled some tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you identify small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make certain your system is functioning at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a huge change on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having trouble getting used to the present temperature, try changing it bit by bit, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will swiftly adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most effortless and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases your utility bills.
  4. 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.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Scott Temperature technician is over for your regular furnace service, ask them about 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 hindering 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. If you need to schedule your annual furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 785-269-0465.
