It can help you identify small problems before they become large problems, and it can help make certain your system is functioning at its best. Thermostat Adjustment—Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a big difference on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting used to the current temperature, try modifying it slowly, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will quickly adjust to the new temperature. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most effortless and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A dirty filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes up your utility bills. Address Drafts—Windows and doors with drafts can cause you to lose heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are easy ways to fix drafts. Efficiency Check—When your Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc technician is over for your regular furnace service, ask them about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine if it is time to look into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without affecting your comfort. There’s never 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.
