We all want to slash our winter heating bills this coming winter. Today we’ll go over all the ways to do that, WITHOUT lowering the thermostat.
Winter can be brutal for all of us. Here are a few tips on how to heat your home for less in the coming winte cold!
1. Use Fans To Circulate Air
Fans can circulate air towards the ceiling. The fans will force the warmer air that rises to the ceiling back down, causing the room to feel warmer.
2. Clean Your Vents & Radiators
Not only is it unpleasant to look at & an allergen, but it’s also a fantastic insulator. Cleaning your vent surfaces regularly will benefit the heat distribution in your home. This allows air to flow freely into all rooms in your house.
3. Watch Your Windows
Windows cover approximately 15-20% of the surface area of your walls. As a result, your windows cause about 10-25% of your house’s total heat loss. That will allow you to heat your home for less!
4. Shut The Doors & Vents
Have rooms in your home you’re not regularly using? Why heat them? When you shut the door & close the vent. No need to heat it.
Also, when you are in a room shutting the door retains the heat of the heat sources (which include you) in your room.
5. Use A Programmable Thermostat
These can help you save 10-20% on your energy bill. Program your heater to turn on early in the morning, off during midday, and back on right before you get home. This way you get the maximum benefit energy efficiency.
