Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Minocqua10/29/2015There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Minocqua, it’s something we all have to be ready 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 perfect time to think about annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had thought before. Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, including: Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that can 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 clear, 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 take care of on their own, swapping 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 pesky holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
