Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay snug no matter the weather. While it might not be the first thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is a great way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling have compiled 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 more ways than one. It can help you catch small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make sure your system is running at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a big change on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting used to the current 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 most simple 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 increases your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors with drafts can cause you to lose heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are easy ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling technician is over for your regular furnace service, ask them 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 inhibiting 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 get you off on the right foot.
