How To Save On Heating Costs This Winter
Winter is just around the corner, and with the cold air comes higher utility bills as you try to stay cozy this season. Although staying warm and comfortable this season can be expensive. Save money this winter by following these helpful tips.
Save On Heating Costs
The best way to save money on your heating costs this winter is to regularly clean or replace your air filters. Dirty air filters put a strain on your HVAC system, causing you to use your heating more and costing you money. Not only will you need to run your heating more often with dirty air filters, but the added strain can wear down components that can lead to more costly repairs. Avoid an inefficient HVAC system by cleaning or replacing your air filters at least every two months.
Another great way to save money on heating costs is to get a programmable digital thermostat that will keep track of your home’s heating and energy usage. Digital thermostats give you more control of your home’s heating and help you cut down on heating usage to save money.
Avoid spending a fortune on heating your home by checking your windows for any cracks. If your window frame has cracks that let in cold air, you will be spending more money on heating as your heater struggles to fight that cold air that keeps seeping inside your home. Fill in any air leaks along with your windows with caulk or weather stripping. You can do the same for your door frame, and you can even get a draft stopper for your door to stop those pesky breezes from blowing under your door.
Turn Your Thermostat Down
According to Energy.gov, you can save as much as 10 percent a year on heating and cooling by simply turning your thermostat back 7-10 degrees Fahrenheit for eight hours a day. Those eight hours can be while you are away at work or school or while you are asleep.
