Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Rocky Mount10/29/2015 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 annual furnace service is a great way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning have put together some 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 identify small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make certain your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a big dent on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having trouble getting acclimated to the current temperature, try modifying it bit by bit, 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 simple and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes up 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 fantastic ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Davis Heating & Air Conditioning technician is over for your annual furnace service, question 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 other ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
