How to Save on Winter Energy Costs
With the winter months approaching, your heating system will be getting a workout sooner rather than later. But just because the temperature is dropping doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune on heating costs. Check out these three easy tips for saving on your winter energy costs:
1. Change your furnace filter on a regular basis.
Your furnace filter needs to be changed regularly in order for it to function at peak efficiency. If your furnace is functioning as efficiently as possible, it won’t have to use as much energy to create a comfortable temperature in your home. Even better, your system won’t endure unnecessary wear and tear, increasing its lifespan. For good measure, change the filter once per month to help cut your energy costs this winter.
2. Invest in a programmable thermostat.
A programmable thermostat is a worthwhile device that can help significantly cut your energy costs this winter season. With a programmable thermostat, you can set your heating system to essentially synchronize with your schedule. For example, you can set your thermostat to where the temperature is automatically lower during the times that you are not home. You can also set the thermostat to where the temperature automatically rises a few minutes before you get home. This will ensure that you save money and come home to a warm home.
3. Schedule a professional tune up for your furnace.
Be sure to schedule a professional tune up for your heating system at least once per year and preferably before the colder months. A tuneup will ensure that your furnace is working efficiently, which will help you save energy and money. Savings aren’t the only benefit that you can reap from a furnace tune up either. Your furnace will be less likely to break down if it is maintained regularly.
