Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Saint Louis10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep snug no matter the weather. While it might not be the first thing that comes to your mind, getting an annual furnace service is a great way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating have assembled some 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 find small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make sure your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a huge change on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting accustomed to the new temperature, try adjusting it gradually, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will swiftly adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most simple and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A dirty filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to tackle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating technician is over for your yearly furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine if it is time to look into 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 help you get started.
