5 Ways To Save On Heating Costs This Winter

Posted on: December 31, 2013

Falling temperatures don’t have to mean rising heating bills.  We’ve put together five simple ways to reduce your heating bill and save energy this winter.

1. Instead of using your home’s central heating to heat the whole house all day, use small room heaters to heat just one room at a time.  This works well if you spend most of the day in a home office room or in the evening when your in the bedroom.

2. Switch to Energy Star® Appliances. Upgrading your older appliances to Energy Star appliances can save you 15 to 30% during the heating season.

3. Let the sun in. Open your blinds during the day to soak up the natural warmth of the sun. Close them again at night to keep heat in.

4. Use a programmable thermostat. No more forgetting to turn down the heat before you leave during the day or when you go to bed.

5. Replace your furnace filter regularly. Replacing your furnace filter when it’s dirty will allow your furnace to operate more efficiently.
