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

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay comfortable no matter the weather. While it might not be the first thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly furnace service is a great way to keep from spending too much on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces have compiled some tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you find small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make certain your system is operating at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a huge change on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having trouble getting acclimated to the present temperature, try adjusting it slowly, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will easily adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the easiest and most helpful 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.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are easy ways to fix drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces technician is over for your annual furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to look into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering your comfort.

There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are more ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started. If you need to schedule your regular furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 308-646-3827.
