Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Tuscaloosa10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Tuscaloosa, 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 perfect time to consider annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had previously thought. Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, to include: Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run more smoothly, 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 during the year. 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 expenses. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can take care of on their own, swapping furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more effortlessly, 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 utilize caulk and weatherstripping to close those pesky holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency.

Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping lower your monthly energy expenses.
