The winter season can be hard on your wallet when it comes to your heating bill. With the right tips and tricks, however, you can reduce those monthly costs without sacrificing your home’s comfort. At Air Today Heating & Cooling, we understand how important it is to stay on budget while keeping everyone warm and cozy during the colder months. That’s why we’ve put together this list of 6 cost-saving tips that will ensure you don’t break the bank while heating your home:
1. Invest in an energy-efficient HVAC system.
Upgrading to a more efficient model may help reduce your monthly bills by up to 20%, as well as decrease energy consumption overall. We offer a variety of different options so you can find one that fits both your lifestyle and budget needs!
2. Check for leaks or drafts in windows and doors.
Old or outdated windows and doors can let outside air in, making it difficult for your HVAC system to keep up with keeping the house warm – resulting in higher energy bills over time. An easy fix is to use weather stripping around windows or door frames – just make sure to check them regularly for signs of wear and tear!
3. Insulate attics and walls properly.
Having proper insulation is key when it comes to retaining heat inside your home – if not installed correctly, this can add up to unnecessary costs on electricity bills each month. Also check walls and other areas of the house that may be lacking in insulation material – especially those exposed most directly to outside temperatures such as attics or basements!
4. Programmable thermostats are a great way to save money.
Taking advantage of pre-programmed temperature settings allows you to customize temperatures throughout various times of the day according to individual preferences (as well as set them lower when no one is home). This allows for much more efficient use of energy than manually adjusting temperatures all day long!
5. Open curtains during daytime hours & close them at night time.
Keeping curtains open during the daylight hours helps bring natural warmth into the room without needing any additional energy consumption from appliances – just remember to close them before nightfall in order to retain heat inside!
6. Regular maintenance checks are essential for saving money.
Making sure all parts of our HVAC system are running efficiently helps minimize strain on other components – ensuring they last longer while using less power in the process! Scheduling maintenance appointments should ideally be done twice a year, but at least once a year if possible!
