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

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay cozy no matter the weather. While it might not be the initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at D & D Heating & AC have compiled a few tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you find 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 several degrees can make a big change on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having trouble getting acclimated to the new temperature, try adjusting it bit by bit, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will swiftly adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most simple and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A dirty 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 might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are easy ways to fix drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your D & D Heating & AC technician is over for your regular furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can assist you in deciding if it is time to look into 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 other ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started. If you need to schedule your yearly furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 720-316-1401.
