Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Colorado Springs

There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Colorado Springs, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the top 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 probably not in the way that you had possibly thought.

Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, to include:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners strictly associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating costs.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees may help you save consistently month after month. 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 quick 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.
  4. Defeat Drafts. It’s not difficult to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to use caulk and weatherstripping to close those annoying holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Triton HVAC & Refrigeration technician stops by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are out there. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping reduce your monthly energy expenses.

Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list complete, but there are a few easy ways to help increase your comfort when the temperatures dip in Colorado Springs.
