  1. Furnace Service—As we have mentioned, furnace service can help save you a number of ways. It can help you catch small problems before they become large problems, and it can help ensure your system is operating at its best.
  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a couple degrees can make a major dent on your energy bill. Month after month those savings will really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting used to the current temperature, try adjusting it bit by bit, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will swiftly adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most effortless and most valuable things a homeowner can do. A grimy 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 easy ways to battle drafts.
  5. Efficiency Check—When your True Temp Heating & Air Inc technician is over for your annual furnace service, inquire about 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 inhibiting your comfort.
