Firewood sales are surging, but consumers are also turning to regular furnaces to offset the high price of traditional energy sources this winter.
It will be to your advantage to make sure your furnace is running at peak performance to keep costs down since furnaces consume a lot of energy.
There’s more to your furnace than changing the filters, as it’s a complex machine.
In order to keep your furnace from burning excess gas or oil, Ed Pavlick, owner of Around the Town Heating and Cooling, suggests giving it a tune-up before the real cold weather arrives to make sure it runs at its best.
Getting a tune-up can save you anywhere from 5% up to 20%.
Most typical gas furnaces will cost a little more than $100 to get services. The cost of oil furnaces is a little higher.
