How to Save Money on Your Heating

You like being warm and you also like saving money … but your heater is making you feel like you can’t have both. You should never have to feel this way.

Some Tips to Keep in Mind

These are some tips that you should try this winter to help your home’s heating:

1. Make Sure You Service Your Furnace

You should always make sure that you service your home’s furnace when the time is right. When we say this, we’re talking about furnace maintenance in particular. When the leaves started to turn red, orange, and yellow and the evenings started to get a little nippy, you should have picked up your phone and called us to schedule a maintenance appointment. If you didn’t, it’s not too late. Late maintenance is better than no maintenance.

2. Insulate

You want to make sure that your home is properly insulated. If you’ve started to notice drafts within your home, this is probably the source of your home suffering energy-wise. The hot air coming in through your vents is slipping out like a thief in the night underneath that gapping door, window, or other drafty area. Start with a little weatherstripping and caulking. If you don’t see positive effects from this, you should move to your attic insulation.

3. Lower Your Thermostat

Have you ever heard the phrase, “your eyes are bigger than your stomach”? It’s when you pile a bunch of food on your plate, start eating, and realize that you’re not as hungry as you thought you were. This can also apply to your home’s thermostat. Sometimes, you set your thermostat to a temperature that’s much higher than it needs to be. Lower your thermostat a little and wait for your home to warm up. It’ll save you money.

4. Consider Upgrading Your Thermostat

Yup … we’re still talking about the thermostat here. That’s because it’s important! If you haven’t upgraded your thermostat in a while, then you should consider upgrading to a Wi-Fi or smart thermostat in your home. We’re here to guide you.

5. Think About Your IAQ

If you really feel like you’re not saving money with your home’s heater, consider your home’s indoor air quality services. Indoor air quality services are great because they optimize your home’s heating. Your heater works so much harder when you don’t have balanced indoor air quality work. We’d suggest starting with duct sealing, duct repair, or even duct replacement services. A clean ductwork system is a great start. We also provide air filtration, air purification, and dehumidification services.
