Important Winter Heating Money Saving Tips

Posted on November 8, 2018

Want to save money on heating bills this winter? Here is our prep list to ensure that you’ll be ready for the cold weather ahead.

1. Check weatherstripping around doors, and lock your windows: In an effort to keep the warm air inside your home and the cold air out, make sure that any weatherstripping around your doors is in good shape. Also make sure your windows are locked.

2. Replace those air filters. A new air filter ensures proper air flow throughout your home, which will help your system to pump warm air without too much effort, which can in turn result in energy savings.

3. Upgrade to a programmable thermostat. A programmable thermostat can determine your lifestyle and heating needs once you begin to set it, reducing heating costs while keeping your home at the right temperature for when you’re home, at work, or asleep, automatically.

4. Switch your fans: Fans work well to cool down your home, but they can also help to move hot air into the living spaces of your home when their direction is reversed. 

Schedule maintenance and repairs: If you haven’t scheduled annual maintenance for your HVAC system or if you have repairs that need to be made, do not wait until the height of the winter season to call for help. Schedule maintenance with an HVAC professional sooner rather than later to ensure fast service and flexible scheduling.
