23 Jan Tips to Help You Lower Your Heating Bill
For many homeowners, winter weather also means high heating bills. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to lower your heating bill, conserve energy and keep your home at a comfortable temperature for you and your family.
Heating Bill Tips:
- Close Your Fireplace Damper – Lighting a fire on a cold day can help you feel warmer, but make sure that you close your damper when the fireplace is not in use. You can lose up to 30% of your home’s heat through your chimney’s flue if it’s not closed.
- Use a Ceiling Fan – Many people don’t realize that ceiling fans can help you save energy during the winter months too. Since warm air rises, ceiling fans can help distribute warm air and push it down to where you feel it.
- Seal Drafty Windows – Drafty windows can be responsible for a lot of heat loss. If you’re not ready to repair or replace your home’s windows, try sealing them with a protective plastic film.
