Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Rocky Mount10/29/2015There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Rocky Mount, it’s something we all have to adjust for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the forefront of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the perfect time to think about annual furnace service as well, but maybe not in the way that you had previously thought. Energy savings comes in various shapes and forms, like: Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees could help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty evident, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, swapping furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more easily, making less work for your furnace. Defeat Drafts. It’s not difficult to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to use caulk and weatherstripping to close those irritating holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency. When your Davis Heating & Air Conditioning technician drops by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are an upgrade. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping lower your monthly energy expenses.
