Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Robstown10/29/2015 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 the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an annual furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at McNatt Inc have put together some tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, 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 certain your system is running at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a big difference on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having problems getting acclimated to the current temperature, try changing 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 easiest and most valuable 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 fantastic ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your McNatt Inc technician is over for your yearly furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to check into 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 more ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
