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

There’s no getting around the changing seasons in Mechanicsville, 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 best time to schedule annual furnace service as well, but probably not in the way that you had thought before.

Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, to include:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating costs.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Altering the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees could help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty clear, but when your system doesn’t have to work as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy costs.
  3. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can handle on their own, changing 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 M & S Heating & Air LLC technician drops by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are an upgrade. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping decrease your monthly energy bills.

Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list complete, but there are a few easy ways to help boost your comfort when the temperatures drop in Mechanicsville. Whether you’re calling to arrange annual furnace service or simply want to know which furnace filter is ideal for your system, give the team at M & S Heating & Air LLC a call at 301-363-4699 to start saving a little more today.
