Furnace Service and More: 5 Ways to Take On Heating Costs in Baltimore10/29/2015There’s no getting around the changing weather in Baltimore, it’s something we all have to be ready 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 perfect time to consider annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had thought before. Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, including: Furnace Service. Many homeowners strictly 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 can help you save on your monthly heating expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees can help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills. Filters. Another quick fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, changing furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more easily, 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 annoying holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy. High Efficiency. When your Quality Refrigeration expert comes by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are an upgrade. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping lower your monthly energy expenses. Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list comprehensive, but there are a few easy ways to help maximize your comfort when the temperatures dip in Baltimore.
