Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Manassas10/29/2015 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 initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly 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 Twin Air LLC have assembled some tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you identify small problems before they become major problems, and it can help ensure your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a huge change on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting used to the current temperature, try modifying it bit by bit, 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 effortless and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up 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 battle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Twin Air LLC technician is over for your yearly furnace service, inquire about 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 affecting your comfort. There’s never a bad 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.
