Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Ontario10/29/2015 You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay cozy no matter the weather. While it might not be the first 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 the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Stan's Heating, Inc have compiled some tips to help you save some money this coming season. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you find small problems before they become large problems, and it can help make sure your system is operating at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat several degrees can make a major change on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting acclimated to the current temperature, try adjusting it bit by bit, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will swiftly adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most effortless and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are fantastic ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Stan's Heating, Inc technician is over for your yearly furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can assist you in deciding if it is time to check into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without inhibiting your comfort. There’s never a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are other ways to save money, but hopefully this will get you off on the right foot.
