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

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep cozy no matter the weather. While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an annual furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from spending too much on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Rescue Heating & Air have assembled a number of tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you identify small problems before they become large problems, and it can help ensure your system is operating at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a huge difference on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having problems getting used to the current temperature, try adjusting it slowly, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will swiftly adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the easiest and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A dirty filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases your utility bills.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors with drafts can cause you to lose heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are easy ways to tackle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Rescue Heating & Air 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 explore getting a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without inhibiting your comfort.

There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will get you off on the right foot. If you need to schedule your regular furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 361-265-4371.
