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 comfortable no matter the weather. While it might not be the the top thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Rescue Heating & Air have assembled some 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 big problems, and it can help ensure your system is operating at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing 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 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 most effortless and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through easily, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up 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 battle 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 hindering your comfort.

There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are more ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started. 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.
