Icy & cold mornings are here and with the holidays approaching, many people are finding ways to stay warm and cozy this winter, all while keeping the utility bills manageable. Here are 3 tips to help you manage your heating bill this winter.
Tip #1: Adjust your thermostat.
Save money by keeping your thermostat adjusted. A programmable thermostat is incredibly helpful because it can help you set a schedule for when your heat turns off and on. Are you gone during the days? Don’t leave the heat running if it isn’t being used. If you program your thermostat to be 10 to 15 degrees lower during the day and then have it set to turn back on when you get home, you will be able to save hundreds of dollars every year!
Tip #2: Don’t let air leaks go unattended.
Air leaks waste energy and money! Be sure to caulk around any cracks in your doors or windows and also examine weatherstripping in door frames and replace any that show deterioration. In addition, if you know you have leaky air ducts, you could be letting warm air out while instantaneously letting contaminants, pollutants, and other toxic elements into your house. Aeroseal Duct Sealing is a fantastic patented solution that fixes leaks from the inside out. And even better: it has an approximate 98% success rate! It is effective and affordable, making it the best way to seal air duct leaks. Contact us to learn more about this process.
