5 Ways to Save Money on Your Heating Bills This Winter

Kennesaw Heating Experts

Are your winter heating bills larger than you’d like? This year winter has been on and off, but if your energy bills are already going up, take a look at these ways to save money on your heating bills this winter.

#1: Turn Down Your Thermostat

The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that you can save 10% a year simply turning your thermostat back 7°-10°F for 8 hours a day. Some people choose to turn down their thermostat when they’re away from the house during the day, while others choose to turn it down at night while they’re sleeping. A Bryant programmable thermostat makes this even easier since you can program it to lower the temperature according to your schedule.

#2: Replace Your Filters

Have you checked your furnace filters recently?  Dirty filters cause your furnace to work harder, which leads to higher bills. If your filters need changing frequently, consider adding a filtration system to clean your air and help your system work more efficiently.

#3: Get a Tune-Up

Just like your car, your furnace or heat pump needs annual tune-ups to keep it running at its best.  Professional adjustments keep your system working at top efficiency, which adds up to big savings.  Our heating maintenance technicians can make sure your system is working optimally.

#4: Seal Leaks

Your furnace may be working well, but if there are leaks in your ductwork, vents, or windows and doors, the warm air won’t get to where you need it. Take time to seal leaks in your home.  If you think you may have leaks in your ductwork, contact us to schedule a duct analysis.

#5: Upgrade for Energy Efficiency

If your furnace is old, an upgrade can save you lots of money on your heating bills. New systems are incredibly efficient. Many homeowners find the investment pays for itself in heating bill savings.
