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

You can’t control the weather, but you can control how much you’re spending to remain cozy no matter the weather. While it might not be the initial thing that comes to your mind, getting an yearly furnace service is a great way to keep from spending too much on your utility bills and now is an excellent time to get that scheduled. The pros at Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning have compiled some tips to help you save some money this coming season.

  1. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you in more ways than one. It can help you identify small problems before they become big problems, and it can help make certain your system is functioning at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a huge difference on your energy bill. After a few months those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting used to the new temperature, try adjusting it bit by bit, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will easily adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the easiest and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A clogged filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills.
  4. Address Drafts—Windows and doors might be causing you to lose a lot of heat and money. Caulk and weather-stripping are great ways to fix drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning technician is over for your annual furnace service, question the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you determine if it is time to check into a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering your comfort.

It’s always the right time to start saving money. Of course there are additional ways to save money, but hopefully this will get you off on the right foot. If you need to schedule your yearly furnace service or have any other questions about your home comfort give us a call at 204-272-8128.
