Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, including: Furnace Service. Many homeowners strictly 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 could help you save on your monthly heating costs. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can help you save consistently month after month. It’s pretty clear, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy costs. Filters. Another quick fix that most every homeowner can take care of on their own, swapping furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more smoothly, making less work for your furnace.
