While winter weather seems like it’s already been here for way too long, its influence on our heating bill is only beginning. Keeping energy costs low during the coldest months of the year can be tough, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take steps to help reduce those costs. That’s why we’ve come up with a few furnace tips to help keep heating bills from skyrocketing.


 
To begin reducing your heating bills and enhancing your energy efficiency this winter, consider:
  • Keeping your blinds open throughout the warmest hours of the day to bring sunlight in, helping warm your home naturally.
  • Sealing leaks around your home’s windows and doors with caulk or weather stripping.
  • Adding a programmable thermostat so that you can more easily control the temperature in your home, which will also improve energy efficiency.
  • Cleaning or replacing your furnace filter every few months.
  • Making sure your home’s heating vents are open and aren’t blocked by any obstructions
  • Replacing your old furnace with a newer, more efficient model if your current furnace is more than 15 years old.
  • Putting insulation in your attic to keep the heat trapped inside.
  • Checking your roof to make sure your shingles are intact, and that there aren’t holes or cracks that will need to be sealed.

Working to keep your energy bills low and energy efficiency high, is a year-round battle, one that can seem overwhelming at times.
