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

There’s no getting around the changing seasons in West Jefferson, it’s something we all have to be ready 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 ideal time to schedule annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had possibly thought.

Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, to include:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly heating costs.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can help you save consistently throughout 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 bills.
  3. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can take care of on their own, switching furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more smoothly, 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 use caulk and weatherstripping to close those annoying holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc. expert comes 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 reduce your monthly energy bills.

Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list the end-all be-all, but there are a few basic ways to help boost your comfort when the temperatures dip in West Jefferson.
