3 Tips to Lower Your Heating Bill
Keeping your home warm in the winter can put a squeeze on your wallet. Turning on your heater can sometimes be costly depending on how cold it is outside and if your home is properly insulated. A poorly insulated home can feel colder, but we have tips to help you stay warm without having to turn up the heat!
Bake a Sweet Treat!
When it’s cold outside, we all sometimes crave a warm sweet treat to get us through the day. Did you know that baking can not only warm you up on the inside but also your home?
Turning on your oven is a great way to provide an extra source of heat. Try baking your favorite winter pastry and when you’re done, leave the door to your oven open to let the heat escape into your kitchen.
Seal Your Air Ducts
This is an issue that many homeowners sometimes unknowingly face — unsealed air ducts. Air ducts in places like your attic or basement can cause you to lose heat. Take a look at your air ducts one day and see if they are sealed.
If your ducts are not sealed properly, or at all, you can easily seal them yourself with foil tape. For more complicated jobs, or if you just want to call in a little help, we suggest calling your local HVAC technician to seal the deal and properly seal your air ducts.
Some of the rooms in your house may feel colder than others due to poor insulation in those rooms. Insulation is one of the most effective ways to keep your home warm. A professional can install insulation for you and help you determine which rooms need insulation to keep your home’s temperature constant and warm in the winter.
