Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Beaverton10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing weather in Beaverton, 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 perfect time to consider annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had possibly thought. Energy savings comes in various shapes and forms, like: Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with changing 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 expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Altering the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees may help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses. Filters. Another quick fix that most every homeowner can take care of on their own, changing 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 not hard to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to use caulk and weatherstripping to close those irritating holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
