Heating

While winter seems like it’s already been here for much too long, its impact on our heating bill is just beginning. Keeping energy costs low during the coldest months of the year can be challenging, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take steps to potentially reduce those costs. That’s why we’ve come up with a few furnace tips to help stave off high heating bills.


 
To start controlling your heating bills and enhancing your energy efficiency this winter, consider:
  • Keeping your blinds open throughout the warmest hours of the day to bring sunlight in, heating your home naturally.
  • Sealing cracks and crevices around your home’s windows and doors with caulk or weather stripping.
  • Adding 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 regularly.
  • Making sure your home’s heating vents are open and aren’t blocked by any obstructions
  • Replacing your old furnace with a newer, more efficient model if you’ve had your current furnace for more than 15 years.
  • Putting insulation in your attic to keep heat from escaping.
  • Checking your roof to ensure your shingles are intact, and that there are no holes or areas that need to be sealed.

Working to keep your energy bills to a minimum and energy efficiency at a maximum, is a year-round practice, one that can seem overwhelming at times. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t take a few small steps to make sure you’re keeping your bills as low as possible.
