Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Manassas Park10/29/2015 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 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 Woody's Sudden Service Inc have compiled a few tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you find small problems before they become large problems, and it can help make sure your system is running at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a huge dent on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting accustomed to the current temperature, try adjusting it slowly, 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 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 increases 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 Woody's Sudden Service 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 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.
