While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is an ideal way to keep from spending too much on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. have put together a few 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 catch small problems before they become large problems, and it can help make certain your system is running at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a major change on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having trouble getting accustomed to the present temperature, try changing it bit by bit, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will easily adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most simple 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 increases your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to tackle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. technician is over for your annual furnace service, question 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. There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will get you off on the right foot.
