Simple Tips for Cutting Your Home’s Heating Costs

The temperatures outside are dropping, and it’s quickly becoming that time of year where you have to crank up the heat in your home. Homeowners shudder at the thought of the rising energy bills that often come in the winter months, but the good news is there are things you can do to cut your home’s heating costs.

  • Make sure your home is properly insulated—Insulation is one of your best allies in fighting high energy bills. When your home is insulated properly, it minimizes heat transfer, so your home stays more comfortable. However, many homes are under-insulated. Have your home inspected by an expert to make sure it’s insulated to the correct levels.
  • Don’t cranks the heat when you’re not home—If you spend the day away at work, turn your thermostat 10 to 15 degrees cooler while you’re gone so that the heat isn’t cranking at full blast the whole time you’re gone. This can save you a lot of money each month.
  • Have your HVAC system inspected annually—Annual inspection and maintenance of your heating and air conditioning system can ensure everything is running properly and efficiently, so you aren’t spending more on heating your home than you have to.
