With the cost of energy rising regularly, everyone is looking for ways to save on energy bills while still staying comfortable. By incorporating a few of the following tips into your routine heating system, you will start to see a difference in energy costs over time.
With a programmable thermostat, you can lower the temperature in your home when you don’t need it to be high, such as when you are gone during the day or covered at night. You can also concentrate the warmer temperatures in living spaces and keep areas that see little use at a lower temperature.
Making sure your attic and walls are well-insulated will make saving energy costs during every season possible. If you have a basement, make sure the ceiling is also well-insulated, making the floors above warmer.
Well-running furnaces and cooling systems are the biggest money savers where energy is concerned. Having your equipment checked twice a year will make sure that all is working as it should be.
Changing your filters twice a year will allow air to flow freely. This makes it easier for your furnace to work, which saves money. It takes only a couple of minutes to change your filters and yet it can be a huge money saver.
Covering your windows with insulated curtains or shades will help keep warm air in and cold air out. You can find these in many styles, including ones that allow the natural sunlight to shine through while still providing insulation.
