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

There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Plainfield, 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 think about annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had possibly thought.

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

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run smoother, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly heating expenses.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a handful of degrees may help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty clear, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy expenses.
  3. Filters. Another quick fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, swapping furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more effortlessly, making less work for your furnace.
  4. Defeat Drafts. It’s not hard to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to utilize caulk and weatherstripping to close those pesky holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your PWA Heating & Cooling Inc technician comes 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 comprehensive, but there are a few easy ways to help boost your comfort when the temperatures drop in Plainfield. Whether you’re calling to set up annual furnace service or simply want to know which furnace filter is right for your system, give the pros at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc a call at 815-410-1231 to start saving a little more today.
