Some Simple Tips to Help You Heat More for Less

Here are a few simple ways that you can get more from the heating in your home for less:

Ditch Your Old Thermostat

Oddly enough, sometimes you have to spend a little money to save money. The latest and greatest in thermostat technology are smart thermostats and if you haven’t upgraded to one then you’re just not getting the most from your heating system. What makes smart thermostats so great is their ability to “learn” about your home. They can take note of when you like to heat your home, when you like to turn your system off, your preferred temperatures, and they can even suggest more energy efficient practices to you. These systems work to save you money.

Have Your System Maintained

If you didn’t have a fall tune-up for your furnace system you’re missing out on savings. A lot of our technicians find that homeowners are hesitant to schedule maintenance services when everything seems like it’s going just fine with your heating system. But this is the point of maintenance—to keep your system well maintained. If you want to keep your system running smoothly make sure that you stay on top of your maintenance services every fall.

Make Sure Everything is Sealed Tightly

Make sure that everything in your home is always sealed tightly. This is more than just closing your doors and windows flush, you need to ensure that your insulation is up to par too. This is what keeps your conditioned air in while keeping the undesired temperatures at bay.

Always Call a Professional

When you’re ready to service your HVAC system in any capacity, make sure that you always contact a professional. We really mean always. You need to treat your system with care and the best way to do this is to only allow a licensed and trained technician touch your system. If you try to do it yourself or even have a handyman try to perform these services for you, you’ll regret it in the end. We’ve seen the aftermath of many circumstances just like this.
