How To Save Money On Your Heating Bill
Posted on February 8th, 2016 by Devine Bros
This winter, Americans will spend billions of dollars just to keep their homes warm. With so much money going to heating, families are having to sacrifice things such as vacations, home improvement projects, and even the occasional night out.
You shouldn’t have to spend an arm and a leg on home heating costs. Here are a few ways that you can lower your heating bill and keep more money in your pockets.
Change your air filters. Furnaces have air filters that should be cleaned or replaced on a monthly basis. Neglecting to keep a clean filter can hinder your energy efficiency and lead to repairs.
Invest in a programmable thermostat. Upgrading to a programmable thermostat requires a little bit of money, but they can quickly pay for themselves with the year-round energy savings they provide.
Tune up your heating system. It is a good idea to have your furnace tuned up every year by a professional technician. An annual tune up not only improves energy efficiency, it also prevents future breakdowns.
Upgrade to Energy Star equipment. If your heating system is more than 15-20 years old, you should consider upgrading. New Energy Star equipment will significantly lower your heating bills, plus some rebates are available on certain models.
