Fall is here, which means Jack Frost is preparing to come knocking on your door any day now.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare in the meantime. Winterizing your home is a vital step to ensuring a comfortable and cost-effective winter for any home owner.
Winter can be as harsh on your energy bill as anything else. According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Winter Tips, “heating accounts for 34% of all annual utility usage and is part of what makes an average home twice the emitter of carbon dioxide emissions as a vehicle.” But there are ways to drive your energy use and cost down during the winter.
So, what can you do to prepare for the oncoming temperature drops and snowfall? The EPA makes two important suggestions for preparing your home for the oncoming winter:
- “If you have a manual thermostat or no thermostat at all, one way to save energy and money this winter is to install a programmable thermostat.”
- “To make sure your heating system (boiler, furnace, or heat pump) is operating at its most efficient, it is a good idea to have a contractor perform a routine check-up and any necessary maintenance on the equipment before freezing weather drives up your energy bill.”
It’s not only important to winterize your home, but to do so before the weather has a chance to cost you even more. Tri-City Heating & Air Conditioning, operating out of Loveland and Fort Collins, are your HVAC experts for northern Colorado.
