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

October 29, 2015

There’s no getting around the changing weather in Westerville, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the forefront of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the perfect time to think about annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had previously thought.

Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, to include:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating costs.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Altering the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees could help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to work as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy costs.
  3. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can handle 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.
  4. Defeat Drafts. It’s not hard to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to utilize caulk and weatherstripping to close those annoying holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Uptown Heating & Cooling technician drops by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are available. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping reduce your monthly energy costs.

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 easy ways to help increase your comfort when the temperatures dip in Westerville. Whether you’re calling to set up annual furnace service or simply want to know which furnace filter is ideal for your system, give the experts at Uptown Heating & Cooling a call at 614-344-6949 to start saving a little more today.
