Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Rocky Mount

October 29, 2015

There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Rocky Mount, it’s something we all have to account for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the front of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the best time to think about annual furnace service as well, but maybe not in the way that you had previously thought.

Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, to include:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly heating expenses.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty clear, but when your system doesn’t have to work as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills.
  3. Filters. Another quick fix that most every homeowner can take care of on their own, swapping furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more smoothly, making less work for your furnace.
  4. 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 pesky holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Davis Heating & Air Conditioning expert stops 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 reduce your monthly energy expenses.

Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list complete, but there are a few simple ways to help maximize your comfort when the temperatures drop in Rocky Mount.
