Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Excelsior Springs10/29/2015There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Excelsior Springs, it’s something we all have to adjust 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 consider annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had possibly thought. Energy savings comes in various shapes and forms, including: Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run smoother, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly heating bills. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to run 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, switching 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 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 pesky holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency. When your Colvin's Inc technician comes by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are an upgrade. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping lower your monthly energy costs.
