Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Rock Hill10/29/2015 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 the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an annual furnace service is a great way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at US Air Heating and Cooling 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 a number of ways. It can help you catch small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make sure your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a huge change on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having problems getting accustomed to the new temperature, try changing it gradually, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will quickly adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the easiest and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, 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 fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your US Air Heating and Cooling technician is over for your regular furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide 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 help you get started.
