Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Mount Pleasant10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing weather in Mount Pleasant, it’s something we all have to adjust 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 ideal time to consider annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had previously thought. Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, to include: Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with changing 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. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses. Filters. Another quick fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, switching 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 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.
