What is causing my heating bill to be so high?

Is heating your home toasting your heating bill? A maintenance agreement can help.

HVAC maintenance agreements

While you may not get excited at the idea of HVAC maintenance agreements, seeing the heating bill go up, up, up in the winter is even more cringe-inducing. We all like our homes to be warm, cozy nests in the winter. However, sometimes our nests can be expensive to keep toasty, especially if there are some HVAC system issues going unchecked. Some common causes of a high heating bill are:

  • A thermostat set too high for too long.
  • A "leaky" house with cracks and crevices around windows and other places for heated air to leak out and cold air to creep in.
  • Colder temperatures causing your back-up furnace to fire up in addition to your regular heating system.
  • Faulty ductwork/distribution system in your heating system.

Keeping your thermostat set at a comfortable, but not too high, setting can definitely help. However, there are likely other problems with your furnace making your energy costs increase. This is where professional maintenance agreements can be your new best friend.

With a maintenance agreement, you will receive regular maintenance of your HVAC system, so you can be certain it is in working order year round. When your furnace has a regular check-up, it will provide you with confidence and peace of mind, knowing the heat will be there when you need it most. Furthermore, because professionals will be there to keep your heater running as efficiently as possible, you won't have the headache of a rapidly increasing energy bill.

When it comes to maintaining your heating system (which in turn maintains your heating bill, which in turn maintains your wallet) it is best to save frustration and potential dollars by having it professionally serviced through maintenance agreements.
