Saving Energy & Lowering Your Heating Bills

Nothing can help you save a dollar or two in this sort of economy like lowering household bills (such as the heat!) Heating your home is a necessary expense that you won’t be able to get rid of, so lowering that cost as much as possible is a smart solution.

What you can do:

  • Home Heat Pumps Instead of Traditional Furnaces
    • Heat Pumps greatly improve upon the efficiency of the traditional HVAC system.
  • Serviced by a Licensed Professional Every Season
    • Make sure your air filters are being changed. Clean or replace the filter regularly (every month or so depending on the frequency of use of the unit) in your heating/cooling unit. When the filter is dirty, the energy efficiency of the unit is reduced.
  • Controlling the Humidity Level
    • Getting a good humidifier can make your house feel warmer or cooler (as needed) by controlling that humidity level.
  • Capitalize on those Tax Credits!
    • There are savings to be had with credits for upgrading or replacing older, less efficient appliances or by using heat pumps (see above!)
  • Insulating Your Entire Home
    • Unless your home was built as an energy-efficient home, adding insulation will probably reduce your utility bills. Even a small amount of insulation–if properly installed–can reduce energy costs dramatically.

Performing simple tasks such as these may help you save on heating costs during these cold winter months. It’s always a good idea to check with a licensed professional, too, if you have any questions!
