Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Crystal Lake10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing weather in Crystal Lake, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the forefront of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the perfect time to schedule annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had thought before. Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, like: Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating bills. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees could help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to work as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, swapping furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more easily, making less work for your furnace. Defeat Drafts. It’s not hard to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to utilize caulk and weatherstripping to close those annoying holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
