While it might not be the initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is a great way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is the ideal 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. Furnace Service—As we previously 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 operating at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a huge difference on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting acclimated to the new temperature, try changing it gradually, 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 most effortless and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A dirty filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors with drafts can cause you to lose heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Lycoming Heating Company technician is over for your yearly furnace service, ask them about 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 inhibiting your comfort. There’s never 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.
