Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Genoa10/29/2015There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Genoa, it’s something we all have to adjust for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the front of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to think about annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had possibly 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 performed can help your system run more smoothly, 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 can help you save consistently during the year. 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 bills. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, swapping 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 easy 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. High Efficiency.

Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping lower your monthly energy costs.
