Cutting the cost of your heating bill can be a tedious task no matter the size of your house. However, doing a few simple things can help reduce the dent in your budget this winter!
Lowering your thermostat by one degree Fahrenheit can cut heating costs by three percent, but there are some other ways to cut your heating bills and energy use while keeping your family warm.
Although upgrades can be expensive at times, they have a much longer payback period, and offer significant long-term savings. Look into getting a system with a programmable thermostat and set lower temperatures while you are sleeping.
Having your furnace cleaned and tuned annually helps the heating system operate safely and efficiently. Tuning may involve resetting the fuel-air mixture for proper combustion as well as cleaning of the blower and burners to assure maximum airflow and complete combustion.
If you have a furnace that is more than 15 years old you might want to consider replacing it with an Energy Star unit, to optimize for the most energy-efficient system. Clogged furnace filters lower the heater's efficiency by preventing proper airflow through the furnace. Low-cost filters are available from Morvent’s One Hour. Check filters monthly to see if they need changing!
