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

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep snug 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 excess spending on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc have put together a number of tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you identify small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make sure your system is functioning at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a huge dent on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting acclimated to the present temperature, try modifying it gradually, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will quickly adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the easiest and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through easily, 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 tackle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc technician is over for your annual furnace service, ask them about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide 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 additional 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 256-270-1196.
