How To Heat Your Home For Less
Why spend all of your hard earned money on energy bills this holiday season? With cold temperatures here to stay, homeowners across Illinois find themselves racing toward the thermostat. But you don’t have to crank up the heat to keep warm, try some of these alternatives to keep your family cozy:
Make The Most Of Your Windows
There are a number of ways you can utilize your windows to keep heat from escaping. On bright, sunny days keep your curtains open to allow the sun’s warm rays to penetrate the room. Then close them at night to trap the heat inside. It’s also vital to check for drafts.
Keep your thermostat set to the lowest comfortable temperature. When you leave for the house for extended periods of time, turn the thermostat back 10 to 15 degrees and you can find yourself saving up to 10% on energy bills each year.
Maintenance Is Key
If you neglect to have your home’s heating system inspected and maintained each year, you’re probably paying more than you should be. Clean or replace furnace filters and make sure the system is kept clean so it operates at peak performance all season long.
When you need furnace, boiler and home heating repair and installation in the Chicago area, contact ABC right away. We’ll respond quickly with the tools and materials needed to solve the problem and restore your home to comfort.
