Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in East Hanover10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay cozy no matter the weather. While it might not be the initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly furnace service is a great way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Effective Service Group, LLC. have assembled a number of 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 find small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make sure your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a huge dent on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having problems getting accustomed to the new temperature, try changing it gradually, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will easily 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 effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes 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 easy ways to battle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Effective Service Group, LLC. technician is over for your regular furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to explore getting 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 additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
