While it might not be the first 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 an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Clean Air HVAC have compiled some tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you identify small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make certain your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a big difference on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having problems getting accustomed to the present temperature, try adjusting 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 simple and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes 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 easy ways to battle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Clean Air HVAC 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 inhibiting your comfort. There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started.
