Heating

While the cold season seems like it’s already been here for way too long, its impact on our heating bill is just starting. 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 possibly lower those costs. That’s why we’ve jotted down a few furnace tips to help keep soaring heating bills at bay.


 
To begin reducing your heating bills and increasing your energy efficiency this winter, consider:
  • Keeping your blinds open during the warmest parts of the day to let sunlight in, heating your home naturally.
  • Sealing leaks 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.
  • Checking your home's heating vents to ensure they 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.
  • Installing insulation to your attic to keep warm air from escaping.
  • Checking your roof to ensure your shingles are intact, and that no holes or areas need sealing.

Working to keep your energy bills to a minimum and energy efficiency at a maximum, is a year-round effort, 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.
