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

There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Selbyville, it’s something we all have to adjust 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 best time to consider annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had thought before.

Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, including:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating bills.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees can help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to work as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy costs.
  3. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, swapping furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more easily, making less work for your furnace.
  4. Defeat Drafts. It’s easy to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to take advantage of caulk and weatherstripping to close those annoying holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing expert stops by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are available. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping decrease your monthly energy bills.
