Winter is fast approaching, which means that now is the best time to brush up on some tips and ideas to save money and keep your system working smoothly through the whole upcoming winter season. You don’t need to fear the season’s energy bills if you take advantage of some simple ways to combat high energy usage as you run your furnace. There are many things you can do to keep more of your money in your pocket, a few of which are listed below:
- Preventive Maintenance: Be sure to call Climate Control Company for more than just heating repair in Vail & Roaring Fork Valley; you need to contact us at least once per year so we can come out and perform preventive maintenance on your system. Just keeping up with an annual tune-up can cut the energy your furnace uses by 10%! We’ll check all connections and make sure that everything is in good working order, and we’ll check for any issues that may otherwise go unnoticed – unnoticed issues can quickly become large, expensive problems. Preventive maintenance will put you in the best position for enjoying trouble-free heating all winter long.
- Uncontrolled Air Leakage: It’s crucial that you seal up any leaks and drafts throughout your home to keep as much warm air in as possible, while you keep the cold outdoor air outside. Most people are shocked to discover just how much air slips through doors and windows, which significantly compromises the energy efficiency of your entire home. Making sure your home is sealed properly is one of the easiest, cheapest, and most effective ways you can save money on your heating bills, and you’ll help extend the life of your furnace at the same time. Use caulk, weather-stripping, and insulation at doors and windows, around your chimney, and anywhere else that air leaks from.
- Love Your Thermostat: Your furnace works hard, and until they hear it from their expert technicians for heating and air conditioning in Aspen, many people do not realize that changing the settings on a thermostat by just a few degrees can have a major impact on their energy consumption and energy bills. In fact, if you would lower the temperature on your thermostat by just one degree, you would save 3-5% on your bill! Just by saving that one degree! You most likely will not even notice the temperature change of that one degree, but you will certainly notice the savings that appear on your bills!
