Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in St. Louis

October 29, 2015

There’s no getting around the changing weather in St. Louis, it’s something we all have to account for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the front 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 consider annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had possibly thought.

Energy savings comes in various shapes and forms, like:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners strictly associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating bills.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees may help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty evident, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses.
  3. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, changing furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more easily, making less work for your furnace.
  4. Defeat Drafts. It’s not hard to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to take advantage of caulk and weatherstripping to close those pesky holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating technician 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 lower your monthly energy costs.

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 simple ways to help increase your comfort when the temperatures drop in St. Louis.
