There are so many things you can do to help lower that heat bill during this winter season–let’s highlight our top 3!
It does not matter how you keep your home warm, these tips will still help you and yours stay warm and toasty this holiday season up until the snow melts!
1. Stick with what works
Don’t fix what isn’t broke! Grab an extra blanket and some fuzzy socks and layer up! You’ve heard dads say it for years, “Put more clothes on, I’m not turning up the heat!” They were right. Adding layers means that you can turn the heat down, making your system not have to work as hard!
Besides, we all know how bi-polar the weather around here can be. One day it will be in the 40’s, the next day it will be 75 and sunny! If you are able to get by with just adding some additional layers on, go for it!
2. Check your attic
Cold air being let in? Have drafts? The culprit could be your attic. Lace up your boots and grab your ladder, it’s time to explore your attic. Check for good and intact insulation. Insulation acts as a barrier between your home and the elements. You want your home to keep the warm air in, and the cold air OUT. Having proper insulation will help lower heat costs. With proper insulation, your system will be able to work more efficiently, causing you to have to pay less to keep your home warm.
3. Contact A Professional HVAC Company
Having professionals come and look at your insulation before situations and problems arise is always a great idea. Proper and routine maintenance is always encouraged. We would rather spot and fix the problems than have them grow and cause even more issues!
