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

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay comfortable 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 spending too much on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at McFadden Heating & Cooling have put together 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 multiple ways. It can help you identify small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make sure your system is running at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a big change on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having problems getting acclimated to the current temperature, try modifying it bit by bit, 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 simple and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases your utility bills.
  4. 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.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your McFadden Heating & Cooling technician is over for your annual furnace service, ask them about 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 inhibiting your comfort.

There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are more ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started. If you need to schedule your annual furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 1-866-781-0111.
