Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Saint Peters10/29/2015 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 an ideal way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at C-N-O Comfort Zone have assembled a few tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you catch small problems before they become major problems, and it can help ensure your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a huge dent on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting used to the present temperature, try adjusting it slowly, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will swiftly adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most effortless and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to battle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your C-N-O Comfort Zone technician is over for your yearly furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can assist you in deciding if it is time to check into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without inhibiting your comfort. There’s never a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are other ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
