3 Ways to Save Money on Heating Bills

  1. Stop turning your unit on and off. You may think that if you’re going to be out all day that turning the heat off will conserve energy and save you money, but it’s actually the opposite. Turning the system on off actually uses more energy than lowering the temperature by 5-10 degrees and then raising it when you get back home. The same goes for businesses whose employees leave for the night and come back the next morning. Smart, programmable thermostats make it really easy to set a schedule or change the temperature from your home—ask us about how to get one!
  2. Don’t neglect annual maintenance. You may think that if your system is running fine, there’s no need to have a professional out for maintenance. Failing to get an annual tune-up can actually cost a lot more in the long-run when the system breaks down way ahead of its expected lifespan.
  3. Get your ducts inspected. Ductwork can easily develop small holes over time where hot air can escape. A professional familiar with heating ducts can inspect the space and determine if repairs need to be made. They can also make a suggestion regarding insulation in heating ducts. Duct insulation helps you retain heat and can save a lot of money in the long run.
