Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Manassas

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to stay cozy no matter the weather. While it might not be the initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly furnace service is a fantastic way to keep from overspending on your utility bills and now is the ideal time to get that scheduled. The pros at Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. have compiled some tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you catch small problems before they become major problems, and it can help ensure your system is operating at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Switching the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a major change on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having problems getting acclimated to the present temperature, try changing it slowly, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will easily adjust to the new temperature.
  3. 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 effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which hikes up your utility bills.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to tackle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. technician is over for your yearly furnace service, inquire 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 hindering your comfort.

There isn’t a bad time to start saving money. Of course there are other ways to save money, but hopefully this will get you off on the right foot. If you need to schedule your annual furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 703-260-1148.
