3 Ways to Control Your Heating Bill Without Calling for Furnace Repair , West Harrison, Indiana

If your monthly utility bill is beginning to be a financial burden for you, it’s time to take action. Before you call for furnace repair, though, there are a number of steps you can take to better control the efficiency of your furnace and, in turn, significantly lower the cost of heating your home. Furnace repair may eventually be necessary, but before you dole out even more cash, try a few easy tricks to maximize your heater.

Here are three ways you can regain control of your heating bill:

  • furnace repairChoose the Right Setting: Your furnace is connected to a fan that blows warm air directly into your home. When the fan runs every minute of the day, it can put immense pressure on the unit and eventually diminish its effectiveness. Instead, change the fan setting to “auto,” which will allow the fan to turn on only when it’s needed. Reducing the usage will significantly lower your utility bills.
  • Check the External Unit: Heat pumps use an outdoor unit to deliver air to your home. Over time, this unit can be compromised by debris from surrounding trees and bushes. When the unit is blocked by sticks and leaves, it makes the machine work twice as hard to complete its job. By removing debris, you can allow your air conditioning unit to run more easily without using as much energy.
  • Change Your Filters: The filters on your furnace are prone to accumulating dirt and dust over time, which can have a negative effect on the efficiency of your heating and cooling system. By changing out the filters every couple of weeks, you allow your unit to work as seamlessly as possible, lowering your monthly bill a notable amount.
