3 Winter Energy Conservation Tips
The winter is here and with temperatures often dropping below the 30s, your energy bill will increase. However, you can reduce the increase by using less energy without sacrificing comfort using these 3 winter energy saving tips.
Turn the Thermostat Down
If you are at home and active, set your thermostat to as low as 65 degrees, and dress additional layers to stay warm. When you go to bed or out for work, turn the thermostat back 10-15 minutes. When you do both, you will save a maximum of 10% a year on heating costs. You should also consider programmable thermostats that can adjust the temperature for you automatically.
Change Your Filter Constantly
You should change your filter once a month or if you are using HEPA filters, every few months. By changing the filter in your HVAC, it allows the heating in your house to flow more efficiently and warms up your home more evenly.
Insulate Your Attic and Basement
Without insulation in your attic and basement, heat will be loss significantly during the winter. Insulation can effectively block cool air from coming in and heat going out the house. Contact a professional insulation company to learn more.
