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 first thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. have compiled a few tips to help you save some money this coming season.
- Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you find small problems before they become large problems, and it can help ensure your system is operating at its best.
- Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a major dent on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting accustomed to the present temperature, try adjusting 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 most effortless and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases 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 Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. technician is over for your yearly furnace service, ask them 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 be the jumpstart you need. If you need to schedule your annual furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 303-452-4146.
