This winter, you can save money by using less energy— without sacrificing that nice warm feeling generated by your home’s heating system. You can do it yourself with a three-step plan. Or you can ask your HVAC contractor to handle the technical work for you.
- Manage the Thermostat
- Yeah, Yeah, Change the Filter
- Rate Your System
- The One-Step Method: Professional Preventive Maintenance
You can ask your HVAC contractor to handle these chores under a preventive maintenance agreement or PMA. PMAs typically cover one or two full-service maintenance visits per year, provide discounts for parts and service work, and ensure that you receive priority service should a system failure occur during the cold of the winter or the heat of the summer. Whether you look after your system yourself or with a PMA, a well maintained heating system will use less energy to heat your home this winter.
