Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Abilene10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep comfortable no matter the weather. While it might not be the initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an annual 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 Abilene Air-Tech Inc have assembled a few tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you catch small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make certain your system is operating at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a huge dent on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having problems getting used to the present temperature, try modifying it gradually, 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 easiest and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A dirty filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors with drafts can cause you to lose heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to tackle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Abilene Air-Tech Inc technician is over for your yearly furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine if it is time to look into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without affecting your comfort. It’s always the right time to start saving money. Of course there are other ways to save money, but hopefully this will get you off on the right foot.
