Heating

While winter seems like it’s already been around for much too long, its effect on our heating bill is just beginning. Achieving low energy costs during the coldest months of the year can be tough, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take steps to possibly reduce those costs. That’s why we’ve come up with a few furnace tips to help keep soaring heating bills at bay.


 
To take aim at lowering your heating bills and enhancing your energy efficiency this winter, consider:
  • Keeping your blinds open over the warmest hours of the day to let sunlight in, warming your home naturally.
  • Sealing cracks and crevices around your home’s windows and doors with caulk or weather stripping.
  • Installing a programmable thermostat so that you can more precisely control the temperature in your home, which will also enhance energy efficiency.
  • Cleaning or replacing your furnace filter every few months.
  • Inspecting your heating vents to make sure they are open and aren’t blocked by any obstructions
  • Replacing your old furnace with a newer, more efficient model if your current furnace is more than 15 years old.
  • Adding insulation to your attic to keep warm air from escaping.
  • Checking your roof to make sure your shingles are intact, and that no holes or areas need sealing.

Attempting to keep your energy bills low and energy efficiency high, is a year-round practice, one that can seem overwhelming at times.
