Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Hamilton10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to remain cozy 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 Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC have compiled a few tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you catch small problems before they become large problems, and it can help ensure your system is operating at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a huge dent on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting used to the current temperature, try adjusting it bit by bit, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will easily adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most effortless and most helpful things a homeowner can do. A clogged 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 could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to tackle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC technician is over for your regular furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to check into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without affecting your comfort. It’s always the right time to start saving money. Of course there are other ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
