Are you trying to find ways to lower your heating bill? It’s a lot easier than you think with these simple tips!
Turn the thermostat down
One degree may not seem to make much a difference. But did you know that for every degree the heat is lowered (within the 60 degree to 70 degree range), you will save up to 5 percent in heating costs? Instead of setting your thermostat at 69 degrees, lower it to 68 degrees. We also recommend turning it down at night. Lowering the temperature setting by 10 degrees for eight hours a day can save you 5-15 percent a year on your heating bill. Use the nights to take advantage of this – doctors say you sleep better in the cooler air anyways!
Let the sunshine in
Take advantage of our Colorado sunshine! Even though it may be below freezing outside, the sun is usually still shining and letting it in is a great way to take advantage of the sun’s heat. It’s especially best to let in the natural sunlight through the south and west facing windows.
Get a furnace tune up
A furnace tune up will keep it lubricated, clean and properly adjusted. Even a thin layer of dust and grime can restrict the airflow, making the furnace work harder and use more energy. With a simple furnace tune up, it can help you save all winter long and will also extend the life of the furnace.
Here at Tri-City HVAC, we offer a smashing deal for that furnace tune-up.
