Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Dallas10/29/2015There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Dallas, it’s something we all have to account 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 perfect time to schedule annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had thought before. Energy savings comes in various shapes and forms, including: Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run smoother, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Altering the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees could help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty clear, 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 complete on their own, swapping 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 easy to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to use caulk and weatherstripping to close those annoying holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
