Helping Hand – Heating System Tips from Leon’s
Are you fighting HIGH heating bills? What can you do about it? Well we called upon Leon Simeck of Leon’s Heating and AC located at 26209 E. Huron River Road. Leon has been in business since 1969 and at his East Huron River Road location since 1973.
His building is a historic building, built about 1891. The original occupant of this building was Motez Printers.
Now for the promised tips,
- Have your professional check your system annually for both heating and cooling including your heat exchanger, AC coils, thermostat operations, humidifier etc.
- Installing a programmable thermostat that can save you money by programming your temperature down in the winter or up in the summer when you are not at home or sleeping.
- Change your filters (if not electronic air cleaner) every 90 days. A blocked filter will slow down fan movement of your heated or cooled air to the entire house.
- Verify all your windows and door seals are in good condition. Improperly sealed doors and windows will allow heated or cooled air to escape costing you more money. On older single pane windows, you can also use a plastic over the window sealer.
