Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Auburn10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Auburn, it’s something we all have to adjust for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the front 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 schedule annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had thought before. Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, like: Furnace Service. Many homeowners strictly associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating bills. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty clear, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, changing furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more effortlessly, making less work for your furnace. Defeat Drafts. It’s easy to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to use caulk and weatherstripping to close those irritating holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency. When your Forster Heating technician comes by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are out there. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping lower your monthly energy expenses.
