Dec. 10, 2012 - The winter chill is fast approaching, so take a little time to prepare the home for cooler days ahead – before the furnace breaks down.
“More than half the energy used at home can be used by the heating and air conditioning system,” said Doyle James, president of Aire Serv LLC. “Regular maintenance is the best way to cut costs and keep your heating system working at maximum efficiency.”
To prevent unwanted costs and keep your heating system in excellent condition this winter, homeowners can follow these tips by Aire Serv:
Install a programmable thermostat. This “smart thermostat” can turn on the heater to the desired set point one hour before you arrive, avoiding the need to run the system all day. There even smart phone apps that can connect to many programmable thermostats.
