Tips for Minimizing Heating Costs This Winter

The winter months can feature periods of cold weather during which you want nothing more than to remain inside. However, keeping your home warm costs money. Let's look at some ways in which you can keep your home comfortable without harming your household's financial situation.

Schedule a Furnace Tune-Up

Your furnace will work more efficiently if it is serviced at least once a year. At Gunthers in American Fork, we can perform a wide range of tasks to keep your furnace running well all winter. Specific services include furnace repair, maintenance, and installation of new units. We also offer commercial heating services, which means that you can get help keeping heating bills to a minimum at the office as well.

Create a Custom Heating Program

If you have a programmable thermostat, you can create a custom heat< program to keep your home at the right temperature to meet your needs. Ideally, the thermostat will be kept at a lower temperature when no one is home and at a higher temperature when everyone is watching TV in the living room.

Depending on the type of thermostat that you have, it may also be possible to create temperature plans for each room in the house. For instance, you can keep the home office warmer during the day than the rest of the house.

Go on a Budget Plan

The company that provides heat to your home may offer a budget or other type of set pricing plan in your area. Under such an arrangement, your heating bill will remain the same for the year regardless of how much energy your home uses. Assistance programs may also be available for low-income families or senior citizens who are on a fixed income.

If you need a furnace tune-up, an air quality check or a new boiler in your home or office, the team at Gunthers can help. We also offer cooling and plumbing services to further meet your residential or household needs. When you are ready to work with a professional service provider, contact Gunthers today.
