Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Lexington10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Lexington, it’s something we all have to account 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 best time to schedule annual furnace service as well, but maybe not in the way that you had thought before. Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, to include: Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating costs. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees may help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can take care of 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 easy 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.
