Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Vancouver10/29/2015 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 first thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC have put together a few tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you catch small problems before they become large problems, and it can help ensure your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a major dent on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting used to the current temperature, try changing it slowly, 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 effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC technician is over for your regular furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to look into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without inhibiting your comfort. There’s never a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
