3 Tips to Stay Warm While Saving Money This Winter
Many homeowners have general HVAC service questions, like what’s the right air filter, when should I replace my heating system, and what’s the noise coming from the vent. Another common question, especially this time of year, is how to save money without sacrificing heat and comfort. Take a look at three tips from the pros.
Tip #1: Don’t Forget Fall Maintenance
November isn’t too late to schedule fall maintenance. This seasonal service for your HVAC system ensures that the equipment is clean, calibrated, inspected, and running as it should. When your system is in tip-top shape, it will run more smoothly and use less energy, which means lower heating bills throughout the winter.
Tip #2: Program Your Thermostat
If you don’t program your thermostat, you’re throwing money away every month on your heating bills. Programming allows you to better control the temperature in your home to adjust for when you’re there and when you’re not. By lowering the heat when you’re away and at night when you’re sleeping, you’ll use less energy and save more money. If your thermostat is old and outdated, an upgrade will pay for itself in the cost savings month to month.
Tip #3: Add a Humidifier
Humid air feels warmer than dry air. In the winter, you can use less heat by adding a humidifier to your HVAC system. Not only will you save money on your utility bills, but you and your family will feel better with more humidity in your home.
