Government projections suggest that homeowners may face higher heating bills this winter due to rising prices in electricity, propane, and natural gas. Here at Metro Express Service, we work with clients to help reduce the financial impact of these rising prices. We offer an Arlington HVAC service that is customized to each client’s needs for all types of furnaces, ensuring that their systems operate as cost-efficiently as possible. The following are a few things one can do to help beat rising fuel costs this winter:
Take Advantage of Sunlight
Keeping blinds open on sunny winter days can help boost temperature, as well as reduce the need for indoor lighting. Closing drapes at night is important as well, as they offer some resistance to the cold.
Use a Programmable Thermostat
Programmable thermostats make maintaining consistent home temperatures—a potent energy saver—much easier while people are home. In addition, many types of furnaces have programmable thermostats that allow homeowners to automatically turn temperatures down while not at home; lowering the temperature by as little as one degree can make a noticeable difference on a heating bill.
Schedule Furnace Maintenance
Dirty air vents and filters, poorly installed furnaces, and other furnace issues can significantly damper their energy efficiency and add to heating costs. Our team of experienced HVAC technicians inspects all types of furnaces to ensure they function properly when needed the most—not to mention save money. With energy prices expected to rise as much as 13% in some parts of the country, even the smallest of fixes may make all the difference.
