Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Odessa10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Odessa, it’s something we all have to adjust 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 best time to schedule annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had thought before. Energy savings comes in many 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 better, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating expenses. 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 easy 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. Defeat Drafts. It’s not hard 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. When your Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning expert 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 decrease your monthly energy costs. Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list complete, but there are a few simple ways to help boost your comfort when the temperatures drop in Odessa.
