Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Plover10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Plover, it’s something we all have to account for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the forefront of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the perfect time to consider annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had previously thought. Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, including: Furnace Service. Many homeowners strictly associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating bills. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, switching furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more smoothly, making less work for your furnace. Defeat Drafts. It’s not hard to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to use caulk and weatherstripping to close those annoying holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
