How to Lower Your Heating Bills in Tomball this Winter

Heating

While the cold season seems like it’s already been here for way too long, its effect on our heating bill is just starting. Maintaining low energy costs during the coldest months of the year can be challenging, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take steps to potentially reduce those costs. That’s why we’ve developed a few furnace tips to help keep heating bills from skyrocketing.


 
To begin reducing your heating bills and increasing your energy efficiency this winter, consider:
  • Keeping your blinds open during the warmest parts of the day to let sunlight in, heating your home naturally.
  • Sealing cracks and crevices around your home’s windows and doors with caulk or weather stripping.
  • Adding a programmable thermostat so that you can more easily control the temperature in your home, which will also increase energy efficiency.
  • Cleaning or replacing your furnace filter every three months.
  • Making sure your home’s heating vents are open and aren’t blocked by any obstructions
  • Replacing your old furnace with a newer, more efficient model if your furnace has been around for more than 15 years.
  • Adding insulation to your attic to keep heat from escaping.
  • Checking your roof to make sure your shingles are intact, and that no holes or areas need sealing.

Attempting to keep your energy bills down and energy efficiency up, is a year-round battle, one that can seem overwhelming at times. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t do some of the smaller things to make sure you’re keeping your bills as low as possible.
