Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Hauppauge10/29/2015 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 the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an annual furnace service is an ideal way to keep from spending too much on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Cool Power LLC 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 a number of ways. It can help you find small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make sure your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a few 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 difficulty getting accustomed to the present temperature, try modifying it bit by bit, 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 simple and most helpful things a homeowner can do. A dirty filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to tackle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Cool Power LLC 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 explore getting a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering your comfort. There’s never 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.
