If there is one thing that nearly everyone can agree on, it is that paying big utility bills is no fun. As the last warm days of summer end and fall begins, there will come a time that the furnace gets cranked up to keep you and your family warm. However, just because the temperatures dip does not mean you have to prepare for high energy bills. It’s possible to lower your bills, with just a few simple adjustments – Affordable Service Plumbing and Heating can show you how!
Maintain the System
First and foremost, realize that a well-maintained HVAC system will be more energy efficient. This means changing your filter regularly, of course, but it also means that you should have the system checked by a professional on a regular basis. One of our certified professionals can look over your system from top to bottom and find out if there are any simple problems that could be costing you money. We can catch small problems early before they turn into big ones.
Be Temperature Smart
In addition to maintaining your system, another good way to reduce your monthly energy bill is by paying attention to your thermostat. Choosing a programmable or smart thermostat will allow you to keep the temperatures warm when you’re home and awake and let them dip slightly when you’re not in need of the heat. A good thermostat may pay for itself in just a couple of months. If you adjust your temperature manually, make sure you don’t waste energy heating your home each day while you’re at work or school. We can install the correct thermostat for your specific needs.
While there is much you can do on your own to reduce your utility bills, it makes sense to talk to someone who knows these products inside and out. Reach out to us at Affordable Service Plumbing and Heating. We look forward to helping you save money–while keeping your family warm and cozy this winter.
