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 regular furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from spending too much on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Central Heating & Plumbing have assembled a few tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you identify small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make certain your system is functioning at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a big difference on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting acclimated to the new temperature, try changing it gradually, 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 valuable things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases your utility bills.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to fix drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Central Heating & Plumbing technician is over for your regular 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.

It’s always the right 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 yearly furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 724-401-1843.
