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

October 29, 2015

There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Pocatello, it’s something we all have to adjust for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the forefront of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to think about annual furnace service as well, but maybe not in the way that you had possibly thought.

Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, like:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners strictly associate furnace service with changing out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating costs.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees could help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty evident, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy costs.
  3. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can take care of on their own, changing furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more smoothly, making less work for your furnace.
  4. Defeat Drafts. It’s not difficult to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to use caulk and weatherstripping to close those pesky holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Vogts Heating & Air expert stops by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are out there. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping reduce your monthly energy bills.

Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list the end-all be-all, but there are a few simple ways to help boost your comfort when the temperatures go down in Pocatello.
