  2. Thermostat Adjustment—Adjusting the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees can make a major difference on your energy bill. It doesn’t take long for those savings to really add up. If you’re having difficulty getting used to the present temperature, try changing it slowly, perhaps a degree a day. Your body will swiftly adjust to the new temperature.
  3. Change Your Filter—Changing your furnace filter is one of the most simple and most beneficial things a homeowner can do. A grimy filter will keep air from passing through effortlessly, which will cause your system to work harder, which drives up your utility bills.

  5. Efficiency Check—When your Brogan Heating & AC Inc technician is over for your yearly furnace service, inquire about the efficiency level of your unit. They can help you decide if it is time to explore getting a more energy-efficient model, which could help save you money without hindering your comfort.
