You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep comfortable 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 spending too much on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning have assembled some tips to help you save some money this coming season.
- Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, 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 functioning at its best.
- Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a major difference on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having trouble getting accustomed to the new temperature, try modifying 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 dirty filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills.
- Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to battle drafts.
- Efficiency Check—When your Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning technician is over for your annual furnace service, question 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 hindering your comfort.
It’s always the right time to start saving money. Of course there are additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started. If you need to schedule your regular furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 717-383-4479.
