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 spending too much on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning 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 functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a huge difference on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having problems getting used 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 most effortless 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 easy ways to battle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning technician is over for your yearly furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to check 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.
