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 think about annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had possibly thought. Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, like: Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees could help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty clear, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, switching furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more effortlessly, making less work for your furnace. Defeat Drafts.
