You just got done paying high summer energy bills. Fall comes along and they seem to decrease a little bit. But now winter has hit and you are now paying high bills again. How do you help reduce the heating costs during the winter? Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning wants to share a few tips with you so that you can keep your energy costs down.
Put in a Programmable Thermostat
Everybody has a different schedule. When you invest in a programmable thermostat, you can set your thermostat to the time of day when you are home versus when you are away. It also can help when you want to adjust the temperature at night when people are sleeping. This can help save you money on your heating bill.
Seal the Holes Around Your Home
During the cold months, your heating bill increased drastically. To help keep the heat in and the cold out, it is smart to go around and look at your doors and windows. If there is any space, you can fill it with caulk or weatherstripping. Sealing off the holes and spaces can help keep the heat in and the cold out.
Make sure that you have proper insulation. If you do not, then add good quality insulation in your home and this helps keep the warm air in. When you have good quality insulation, your heater does not have to work as hard to keep your house warm, which means you can keep that money in your pocket. Plus, because your heater is not working as hard it will have fewer breakdowns.
Open Curtains & Blinds During the Day
Open your curtain. When you open your curtains during the day, it brings in beautiful, natural sunlight. Not only do you get sunshine in your home that you can enjoy but, the sunshine can help warm up your home keeping your heater from working so hard. When you open your curtains it’s a win-win. You get the light that comes into your home and you use less of your heater.
Upgrade to an Energy Efficient Furnace
How old is your furnace? When you update to a new energy-efficient furnace, this can help you in the long run. Because it’s more energy efficient you save money on your energy bills. But it also helps improve the comfort and the air quality in your home. When you get a new energy-efficient furnace, you can have peace of mind knowing that it is a new up-to-date furnace that will benefit you in many ways.
Increase the Temperature
When winter starts coming in, we want to make sure we stay warm. Often when this happens we crank up the heater to stay warm, but that is not always the best solution. Try decreasing your temperature just a little bit and see how you feel. Most people won’t even notice a difference if they decrease it by just a small amount. When you decrease the temperature a little bit, you may not notice the temperature but your bills will. This can help decrease your energy bills significantly.
