Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Middletown10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing weather in Middletown, it’s something we all have to account for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the top of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to consider annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had possibly thought. Energy savings comes in various shapes and forms, to include: Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run smoother, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating bills. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees can help you save consistently throughout the year. 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 simple fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, swapping furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more smoothly, 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.
