You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay snug no matter the weather. While it might not be the initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an annual furnace service is an ideal way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Daves Diversified Services have put together some tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you find small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make certain your system is functioning at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a big change on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having trouble getting used to the current temperature, try adjusting 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 most simple and most helpful things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes up your utility bills.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors with drafts can cause you to lose heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are easy ways to battle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Daves Diversified Services technician is over for your yearly furnace service, ask them about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to explore getting a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without affecting your comfort.

There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will be the jumpstart you need. If you need to schedule your regular furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 540-369-3971.
