While it might not be the first thing that comes to your mind, getting an regular furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Triton HVAC & Refrigeration have compiled a few tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you catch small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make sure your system is operating at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a big dent on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting acclimated to the current temperature, try modifying 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 beneficial things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through easily, 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 easy ways to battle drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Triton HVAC & Refrigeration technician is over for your regular 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. There’s never a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are other ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need.
