Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Manassas Park

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to remain cozy no matter the weather. While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly furnace service is an ideal way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Woody's Sudden Service Inc have compiled a few tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you catch small problems before they become large problems, and it can help ensure your system is running at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a big dent on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting used to the current temperature, try changing it gradually, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will quickly adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most effortless and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to battle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Woody's Sudden Service Inc technician is over for your annual 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.

It’s always the right time to start saving money. Of course there are additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need. If you need to schedule your regular furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 703-278-2036.
