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

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay 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 perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Lycoming Heating Company have compiled a few tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we previously 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 operating at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a huge dent on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting acclimated to the present temperature, try changing 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 dirty filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, 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 great ways to fix drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Lycoming Heating Company technician is over for your annual furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine if it is time to look into 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 more ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need. If you need to schedule your regular furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 570-244-2510.
