Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to remain snug no matter the weather. While it might not be the initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is an ideal way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. have put together a few tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you catch small problems before they become big problems, and it can help ensure your system is running at its best. 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 trouble getting acclimated to the present temperature, try changing it gradually, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will easily adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most effortless and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A dirty filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors with drafts can cause you to lose heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. technician is over for your yearly furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine if it is time to check into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering your comfort. There’s never a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are more ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started.
