Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Midlothian10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to remain snug no matter the weather. While it might not be the initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. have compiled some tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you identify small problems before they become large problems, and it can help ensure your system is running at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a major change on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having problems getting acclimated to the present temperature, try changing it slowly, 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 helpful 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 could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to battle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. technician is over for your annual furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can assist you in deciding if it is time to look into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without affecting your comfort. There’s never a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are more ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
