Heating

While winter seems like it’s already been around for much too long, its effect on our heating bill is just starting. Achieving low energy costs during the coldest months of the year can be tough, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take steps to potentially decrease those costs. That’s why we’ve jotted down a few furnace tips to help keep soaring heating bills at bay.


 
To start controlling your heating bills and boosting your energy efficiency this winter, consider:
  • Keeping your blinds open throughout the warmest hours of the day to allow sunlight in, warming your home naturally.
  • Sealing cracks around your home’s windows and doors with caulk or weather stripping.
  • Adding a programmable thermostat so that you can more easily control the temperature in your home, which will also increase 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.
  • Putting insulation in your attic to keep warm air from escaping.
  • Checking your roof to confirm your shingles are intact, and that no holes or areas need sealing.

Working to keep your energy bills down and energy efficiency up, is a year-round practice, one that can seem overwhelming at times.
