Keeping Your Home Warmer for Less During Winter

Winter is fast approaching, so it's time to start thinking about how to keep your home warm—without racking up a huge heating bill. Luckily, you can do a few easy things to make your home more energy-efficient and keep it cozy all winter long. Here are five tips to get you started.

1. Get a Smart Thermostat

One of the easiest ways to reduce your heating costs is to upgrade to a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can save you up to 30% on your energy bill by automatically adjusting the temperature in your home based on your daily schedule. They also allow you to control your home's temperature from your phone, so you can turn down the heat when you're away at work or on vacation.

2. Add More Insulation

Another way to reduce your heating costs is to add more insulation to your home. Heat can escape through cracks in the walls or around windows and doors if your home is poorly insulated. Adding more insulation can keep heat from escaping and make your home more comfortable during the winter months.

3. Seal Air Leaks

In addition to adding insulation, another way to prevent heat from escaping is to seal any air leaks in your home. Common areas where air leaks occur are around doors and windows, the attic, and the basement. By sealing these air leaks, you can keep heat from escaping and make your home more comfortable during winter.

4. Use Curtains or Blinds

Another way to keep heat from escaping is to use curtains or blinds on windows that get direct sunlight during the day. Doing this can block out the cold air and keep heat from escaping through windows.

5. Use Space Heaters Wisely

If you need to use a space heater, there are a few things you can do to minimize its impact on your energy bill:

  • Try only using it when necessary and turn it off when you leave the room.

  • Invest in an energy-efficient space heater that will cost less to operate.

  • Ensure the space heater is ventilated correctly, so it doesn't overheat the room.
