Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Metro Atlanta10/29/2015There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Metro Atlanta, 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 ideal time to think about 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 strictly associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly heating bills. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees could help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty evident, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, switching 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 take advantage of caulk and weatherstripping to close those pesky holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency. When your ACS Inc technician comes by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are out there. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping reduce 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 easy ways to help increase your comfort when the temperatures go down in Metro Atlanta.
