Find the Balance Between Comfort and Efficiency with Your Heater

Being comfortable is important—but so is reducing your utility bills, which is where HVAC services come into play. It can be difficult to find a balance between comfort and efficiency when it comes to heating. Here are a few places to start.

Install a Smart Thermostat or Programmable Thermostat

A smart or programmable thermostat can turn down your heat when you’re away from home. You’ll still be comfortable when you’re at home, but you won’t need to waste money heating an empty house. Smart thermostats can be set to turn up the heat at the time you head for home, so your house is comfy and warm when you get there.

Clean Out Your Heater and Ducts

The more efficiently your heater runs, the less work it’ll need to do to warm your home. If you want your heater to deliver warmth effectively, make sure the furnace and ducts have received proper maintenance and cleaning. Otherwise, the furnace may be working hard just to blow hot air through blocked vents, which isn’t going to contribute to a warmer home.

Replace Your Heater

If your furnace is 15 to 20 years old, it may be approaching the end of its life. You may be better off purchasing and installing a more efficient heater rather than trying to improve the efficiency of an older one. Replacing your heating system will mean you can get more heat for less energy.

customer review

“Dependable Service Plumbing & Air sent a pressure washing company out to clean my entire driveway, when only three small spots were unintentionally put on the corner of my driveway when my neighbor was having a replacement water heater installed. Tommy, the owner of Dependable Service Plumbing & Air, came out to look at my driveway right away, and he had Winston out to clean not only the spots off, but my entire driveway, including my front porch. Winston was very professional, as he explained the difference in concrete between my driveway and my front porch. He also explained the reason for some bad rust stains that were there as a result of metal objects that were mixed into my driveway concrete by my builder. He did an excellent job on everything, and my driveway is now clean enough to have it coated with a light concrete paint (two coats) that I had already contracted out to have done. Caretaker Services Pressure Washing did such a good job of cleaning (about 2,200 lbs. pressure on my driveway & about 400 lbs on my front porch with a household cleaner first) that my coating contractor told me that what is left of my rust stains will all be covered over by the light colored paint. I am very pleased, as he gave me a great education along with a great cleaning job! Also, I will now use Dependable Service Plumbing & Air as my plumber for all my future plumbing needs, as they did a great job for my neighbor!” –- Bill B.
