4 Ways to Lower Your Heating Bill This Winter
As the weather starts to cool down, many of us begin to think about how we can lower our heating bills this winter. Luckily, you can do a few simple things to help cut costs. Let Climate Systems Heating and Cooling list the best ways to lower your heating bill this winter.
1. Use a Programmable Thermostat
One of the best ways to lower your heating bill is to use a programmable thermostat. You can set them to heat your home less when you’re away and increase the heating when you’re back home. Programmable thermostats can also save you up to 10% on your energy bills yearly.
2. Seal Any Drafts
Another way to lower your heating bill is to seal up any drafts in your home. Drafts come from air gaps between the window and door frames, cracks on your walls or aged and brittle weatherstripping. Sealing them up will help keep your home warm and lower your heating bill.
3. Get a Tune-Up for Your Furnace
Getting a tune-up for your furnace is another way to lower your heating bill. A heating system with a regular maintenance schedule lets technicians adjust, repair and replace furnace components to improve its heating and energy efficiency. Most contractors can let you sign up for an annual or bi-annual tune-up schedule.
4. Add Insulation
Adding insulation to your attic or walls can help keep heat from escaping, making your home warmer and lowering energy costs. Hire a qualified roofer to inspect your attic insulation and a home renovator to see if your indoor insulation needs an update.
