Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in York10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing weather in York, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the forefront of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the perfect time to consider annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had thought before. Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, to include: Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run smoother, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly heating expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Altering the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees may help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to work as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, changing furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more smoothly, making less work for your furnace. Defeat Drafts. It’s not difficult to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to take advantage of caulk and weatherstripping to close those pesky holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
