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

October 29, 2015

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep cozy no matter the weather. While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an annual furnace service is an ideal way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Lanz Furnace and Fireplace have put together some tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you identify small problems before they become large problems, and it can help ensure your system is functioning at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a big change on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting accustomed to the current temperature, try modifying it gradually, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will easily adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most effortless and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes up 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 fantastic ways to fix drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Lanz Furnace and Fireplace technician is over for your annual furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine if it is time to explore getting a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without inhibiting 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 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 608-291-3606.
