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

There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Wisconsin Rapids, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the front of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the ideal time to think about 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 changing out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that may help you save on your monthly heating expenses.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees could help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty obvious, but when your system doesn’t have to run as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy costs.
  3. Filters. Another simple fix that most every homeowner can complete 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.
  4. Defeat Drafts. It’s not difficult to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to take advantage of caulk and weatherstripping to close those pesky holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc pro comes by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are available. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping lower your monthly energy costs.

Everyone likes to save a few dollars here and there, and by no means is this list comprehensive, but there are a few basic ways to help maximize your comfort when the temperatures dip in Wisconsin Rapids. 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 Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc a call at 715-301-0256 to start saving a little more today.
