Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Denver10/29/2015 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 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 the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. have put together some tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you identify small problems before they become large problems, and it can help ensure your system is running at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a major difference on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having problems getting acclimated to the current temperature, try changing 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 easiest and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A dirty filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to tackle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. technician is over for your annual furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can assist you in deciding if it is time to explore getting a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without affecting your comfort. It’s always the right time to start saving money. Of course there are more ways to save money, but hopefully this will get you off on the right foot.
