How do you keep costs manageable in the coldest time of the year and decrease expenses, while also checking that your indoor temperature is warm and cozy? Here are some tips to keep those heating costs under control:
- Cover drafts: drafty window and doors are the enemy, especially in the winter. Peruse your home for any openings that might need caulking or weatherstripping to conceal cold air out.
- Air filter replacement: recalling to change filters can be difficult, but replacement of these filters can do wonders for your HVAC system. New filters increase air quality and flow, and they often lower monthly energy costs, too.
- Lowering temps: even just lowering the thermostat by one or two degrees can save a lot of energy each month. Without dropping temperatures radically, you’d be astonished how comfortable you keep with just a slightly lower set temperature in the winter.
