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 regular furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from spending too much on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Oak Point Heating and Air LLC have compiled a number of tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you catch small problems before they become large problems, and it can help make sure your system is operating at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a big change on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting accustomed to the new temperature, try changing it gradually, 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 easiest and most helpful things a homeowner can do. A dirty filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to battle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Oak Point Heating and Air LLC technician is over for your annual furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine if it is time to check into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without affecting your comfort.

It’s always the right 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. If you need to schedule your annual furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 940-202-1202.
