Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Florissant10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Florissant, it’s something we all have to be ready 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 probably not in the way that you had thought before. Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, including: Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating bills. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees can help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty evident, but when your system doesn’t have to work as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills. 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. 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.
