Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Lawrence10/29/2015 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 ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Scott Temperature have put together some tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. 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. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a big change on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having problems getting used to the new temperature, try adjusting it bit by bit, 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 easiest and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A dirty filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases 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 fantastic ways to fix drafts. 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 get you off on the right foot.
