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

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

Energy savings comes in many shapes and forms, to include:

  1. Furnace Service. Many homeowners strictly associate furnace service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up completed can help your system run more smoothly, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating costs.
  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 operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills.
  3. Filters. Another easy fix that most every homeowner can complete on their own, changing 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 not hard to lose a lot of your heated air to drafty windows and doors, so be sure to use caulk and weatherstripping to close those irritating holes and keep the warm air indoors to enjoy.
  5. High Efficiency. When your Kapaun & Brown Inc. technician stops by for your annual furnace service, ask about your current system’s efficiency level and what higher efficiency models are an upgrade. Choosing higher efficiency can provide you with the same level of comfort, while helping decrease 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 boost your comfort when the temperatures drop in Marshalltown. Whether you’re calling to set up annual furnace service or simply want to know which furnace filter is correct for your system, give the team at Kapaun & Brown Inc. a call at 641-753-3563 to start saving a little more today.
