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

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

  1. Furnace Service—As we previously mentioned, furnace service can help save you in multiple ways. It can help you find small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make certain your system is running at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a huge change on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having trouble getting acclimated to the new temperature, try adjusting it gradually, 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 effortless and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through freely, which will cause your system to work harder, which increases your utility bills.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to battle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your The Frazier Company technician is over for your annual furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to explore getting 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 additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will help you get started. If you need to schedule your yearly furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 402-896-5900.
