Many homeowners only associate furnace service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run smoother, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating expenses. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty evident, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy costs. Filters. Another simple 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.
