Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Columbus10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing weather in Columbus, it’s something we all have to adjust for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the front of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to schedule annual furnace service as well, but maybe not in the way that you had possibly thought. Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, to include: Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run smoother, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly heating expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees may help you save consistently throughout 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 costs. Filters. Another quick 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. It’s not difficult to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to take advantage of caulk and weatherstripping to close those annoying holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency. When your Wolfe & Sons 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 expenses. Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list complete, but there are a few simple ways to help boost your comfort when the temperatures dip in Columbus.
