Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Great Falls10/29/2015There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Great Falls, it’s something we all have to account 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 best time to think about annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had previously thought. Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, to include: Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating bills. Take It Down A Notch. Altering the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees could help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty evident, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses. 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 easily, making less work for your furnace. Defeat Drafts. It’s not hard 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 Falls Mechanical Services LLC technician stops by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are out there. 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 the end-all be-all, but there are a few simple ways to help maximize your comfort when the temperatures go down in Great Falls.
