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

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 initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Local HVAC Repair & Service have compiled a number of tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you find small problems before they become large problems, and it can help make certain your system is operating at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a major change on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting accustomed to the current temperature, try modifying it gradually, 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 easiest 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 drives up your utility bills.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors with drafts can cause you to lose heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are easy ways to battle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Local HVAC Repair & Service technician is over for your regular furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine 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 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 224-300-4806.
