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

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to keep snug no matter the weather. While it might not be the first thing that comes to your mind, getting an annual furnace service is a great way to keep from excess spending on your utility bills and now is the perfect time to get that scheduled. The pros at Stieferman Heating Company Inc have put together a number of tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we mentioned before, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you find small problems before they become major problems, and it can help make sure your system is functioning at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a big difference on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting accustomed to the new temperature, try adjusting it bit by bit, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will quickly adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most simple and most helpful things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors could be the reason you’re losing both heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to fix drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Stieferman Heating Company Inc technician is over for your yearly furnace service, ask them about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine if it is time to check into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without affecting your comfort.

It’s always the right time to start saving money. Of course there are other ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started. If you need to schedule your regular furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 573-203-3908.
