Just because we use our heating systems less than the northern states, doesn’t mean we can slack off when minimizing heating costs during the colder months of the year. Reducing your heating costs can save you money. Comfort Zone of North Florida, an experienced HVAC contractor, shares a few tips to help you minimize heating costs this fall and winter:
Dress and Decorate Appropriately
One of the simplest ways you can reduce heating costs is by dressing and decorating your home appropriately. Wear socks or slippers and dress in layers and you can turn your thermostat down a few degrees. Consider putting flannel sheets on your bed, insulated curtains on your windows, and rugs on your floors. This will help trap the heat inside your home and help keep you warm even if the weather outside is a bit chilly.
Maintain Your HVAC
Dirty filters are a common problem that can cost homeowners money. Set reminders to make sure you change the HVAC filters regularly. This will improve your heating system’s performance and efficiency, preserve your home’s indoor air quality, and prevent future problems with your HVAC system. Consider scheduling regular HVAC maintenance with a residential and commercial air conditioning service provider, as well.
Add Insulation to Your House
Adding insulation to your house is one of the most affordable and effective ways to make your home more energy-efficient. You can find out which parts of your home to insulate by consulting the Department of Energy’s website or by asking a professional to help you. In addition, make sure your home’s ducts are tight and leak-free. Even the most well-maintained heating system won’t be efficient if the ducts are leaking.
