Can I really make my home more energy efficient this winter?

Energy efficiency is no laughing matter. Saving money on utility bills can cut down dramatically on a household budget. What are some ways to cut heating costs this winter? Start with these four:

Tip #1: Insulate

Insulating your home up to code is one of the best ways to save on your heating costs. A large percentage of the heat from your home can escape through the walls and especially through the attic and roof if your home isn’t properly insulated. Keep your heat where it belongs by having the insulation checked and upgraded.

Tip #2: Turn It Down

Adjusting your temperature can save significantly on heating bills. You probably won’t even notice a change in your comfort level if your house is just one or two degrees cooler, but you will notice the difference on your energy bills.

Tip #3: Invest In Programming

A programmable thermostat is one of the best and easiest ways to make your home more efficient. Programming allows you to adjust your heat use for when you really need it based on your schedule and your preferences. Heat more when you’re home, less when you’re away.

Tip #4: Change Your Filters

Your furnace filters grab and trap all of the particles and pollutants that float through the air in your home, and they can get really dirty. When this happens your heating system has to work overtime to keep the same amount of air flowing to the rooms in your house. Changing the filters regularly can help your furnace function more efficiently.

There are a lot of easy and effective ways to lower your heating costs in the winter. For more ideas on how to improve your home’s energy efficiency, contact the team at All City Heat and Air by calling 704-545-2000 or by clicking here.
