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

There’s no getting around the change of seasons in Hattiesburg, it’s something we all have to be ready for and make changes to accommodate. While it still may not be at the forefront of your mind, the time is getting closer to start using your heating system. This, of course, means that it’s the perfect time to consider annual furnace service as well, but possibly not in the way that you had previously thought.

Energy savings comes in a number shapes and forms, like:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners only associate furnace service with switching out filters, but having a tune-up done can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that could help you save on your monthly heating costs.
  2. Take It Down A Notch. Altering the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can help you save consistently throughout the year. It’s pretty obvious, 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, switching furnace filters every month or two during the heating season helps air pass through more easily, making less work for your furnace.
  4. Defeat Drafts. It’s easy 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 annoying holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning expert 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 reduce your monthly energy expenses.

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 Hattiesburg. Whether you’re calling to arrange annual furnace service or simply want to know which furnace filter is correct for your system, give the experts at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 601-292-9763 to start saving a little more today.
