Tips To Save on Heating This Winter

It is no doubt that many will be facing an inflated utility bill during the upcoming Winter months. We want to help by giving you some helpful tips to make your home's heat usage more efficient. But, if you are concerned your home's heating is seeming to work less than par, we have the best HVAC professionals here to help keep your home comfortable.

Turn Down Your Water Heater

Reducing your water heater's temperature to 120 degrees can save you on water heating costs. Cutting your shower in half can save you up to 30%!

Replace Your Furnace Filter

Clogged debris can make your unit work harder than necessary, raising your energy costs. Make sure to replace the filter and choose to get your furnace inspected by a professional.


Don't let your home's warm air draft out through unsealed windows and doors. Make sure you insulate cracks so no cold air gets in through the gaps.

Turn Down The Thermostat

Setting your thermostat to 68 degrees as opposed to 70 -72 in the Winter. Isn't it nice to wear your coziest sweatshirt inside and not get hot?

Close Unused Vents

Close the vents in areas of your home that does not get much traffic. Rooms that don't need heating can be sealed off so the heat gets directed into the more used places in your home.

Turn on The Ceiling Fan

Keeping your fan running clockwise pushes the warm air back into the room.

Use The Sunlight

Use the free sunlight to naturally warm your home. Close the curtain or drapes to keep the heat in when the sun sets. 

Light a Candle

This candle trick can tell you if you have an air leak! Light a candle and see if the smoke trails in a specific area of the room. If it does, you likely have an air leak that can be covered with caulk or another sealant.
