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

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay snug no matter the weather. While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an annual furnace service is a great way to keep from spending too much on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning have assembled 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 more ways than one. It can help you find small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make sure your system is operating at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a huge dent on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting acclimated to the current temperature, try changing 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 easiest and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, 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 Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning 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 check into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering your comfort.

There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are other ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need. If you need to schedule your regular furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 203-734-7648.
