When winter heating costs increase faster than your ability to adjust your budget, it’s time to take matters into your own hands. Here is some practical advice on managing your utility bills now and throughout the year.
Check for Drafts
Drafts are one of the most common reasons why your home loses heat. Especially in older homes, poorly fitting windows and doors can allow cold air in and warm air out, making your HVAC system work harder. Seal cracks and gaps between windows and doors and their frames.
Keep Air Filters Clean
If your HVAC system uses filters of any kind, it’s important to keep them well-maintained. Clean or replace them according to the manufacturer’s schedule. When the filters are full of dust and impurities, your HVAC system requires more energy to push warm air through them. If you’re not in the habit of doing this seasonal maintenance yourself, ask your HVAC contractor for assistance.
Get Your Furnace Tuned Up
A furnace that runs well uses fuel efficiently when getting to the temperature you set on the thermostat and keeping the air in your home there. Your HVAC service technician can check settings, make adjustments and clean important furnace parts to make sure it’s optimized for the hard work you expect it to do this winter.
