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

There’s no getting around the changing weather in Hickory, it’s something we all have to account for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the front of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the best time to consider annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had thought before.

Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, to include:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners solely associate furnace service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly heating costs.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees could help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to work as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses.
  3. 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 smoothly, making less work for your furnace.
  4. Defeat Drafts. It’s not hard 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.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Climate Control Systems technician stops by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are available. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping decrease your monthly energy costs.

Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list complete, but there are a few simple ways to help boost your comfort when the temperatures dip in Hickory. Whether you’re calling to arrange annual furnace service or simply want to know which furnace filter is correct for your system, give the experts at Climate Control Systems a call at 828-283-0369 to start saving a little more today.
