Don’t miss these tips for saving energy and money while staying safe during heating season!

  • Call Doug’s every year for your annual carbon monoxide check and furnace tune-up. Your home may show signs of a carbon monoxide leak. A faulty furnace could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. The servicemen at Doug’s know what to check when looking for leaks.
  • Purchase a high-efficiency furnace to save on your fuel bills year after year. Not only will this protect you from inflating fuel costs, but it’s also a smart choice for the planet.
  • Replace the furnace air filter monthly. In winter, we spend more time inside giving the air filters their most use. Pet hair, dander, smoke, and allergens stay in the home. The furnace air filter picks up most of these debris and they in turn clog filters at a higher rate.  If you have a clogged air filter, air doesn’t flow freely into the furnace system, which makes the furnace work even harder.
  • Month after month, heat pumps save on the ever-increasing cost of heating fuel. Consider this option for a lifetime of lower utility bills! Heat pumps use a small amount of energy to move heat from one location to another. They are extremely efficient as they are only moving heat; not creating it.
