Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in McMurray10/29/2015There’s no getting around the change of seasons in McMurray, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the top of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to consider annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had previously thought. Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, to include: Furnace Service. Many homeowners strictly associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run smoother, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly heating costs. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees may help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty clear, but when your system doesn’t have to work as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can handle 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 hard 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.
