Many homeowners only associate furnace service with swapping out filters, but having a tune-up performed can help your system run better, providing you with efficient comfort that can help you save on your monthly heating costs. Take It Down A Notch. Changing the temperature on your thermostat even a few degrees may help you save consistently during the year. It’s pretty clear, but when your system doesn’t have to operate as often, you don’t have to pay as much in energy bills. Filters.
