How to Help Your Heating Bills

Your heating bills are a little high and you want to lower them. Here are a few ways you can do so:

1. Maintain Your Heater

You should maintain your home’s heater every single fall season. If you’re not doing this, it means that you’re opening up your heater to potential problems. Our heating technicians can get in and out of your home fast for your maintenance appointment. We’re going to pinpoint the problems and fix them before they can pose a real threat to your comfort.

2. Change Your Filter

You should be changing your heater’s filter at least once a season. For the heating season, this means that you should switch it out once in the fall and once in the winter.

If you dropped the ball in fall, there’s still time to pick it up this winter. Changing your filter means that you’re priming your home for quality work. We’re here to help you out with everything you need.

3. Upgrade Your Thermostat

If you’ve had the same thermostat for the past decade, then you’re overdue for an upgrade. Smart and Wi-Fi thermostats are the best way to improve your energy efficiency, comfort, and heating longevity.

4. Add Insulation

You might need to add insulation to your home if you can’t get the heating you’re looking for with ease. If you don’t have great heating insulation, then it means you’re going to pay for heating that’s simply flying out of your home.

5. Open Your Blinds/Curtains

Let in some natural light during the day. Natural light is a great way to naturally raise the temperature of your home.

6. Layer Up

There’s nothing wrong with throwing on an extra layer while you’re at home. Pull out those fuzzy socks and a blanket when the temperatures dip in the evening.

7. Use Your Ceiling Fan

Yes, you can actually use your home’s ceiling fan during winter too! All you need to do is grab a step-stool, get up to the base of your home’s ceiling fan, and flip the switch at the base. This redirects the flow of your home’s ceiling fan to push the warm air that typically collects at the top of your home down to the room where you can enjoy it. This will help you spend less time and energy heating your home.
