How to Save on Your Heating Bill

Keep your home warm on cold winter nights for less this year! With a few simple maintenance checks around the home, you can save on your home heating bill, while still keeping your home nice and cozy.

How to Save:

  • Check Your Fireplace – Although fireplaces are typically thought of as places of warmth, drafty fireplaces are just as bad as keeping a window open on a cold day. Make sure that your fireplace damper is closed IF not in use and check the seal to make sure that it’s as snug as possible.
  • Schedule Heating Maintenance – Scheduling service for your heating system is an important part of your regular home care. Maintenance helps keep your system working efficiently and can save you money in the long term.
  • Seal Any Leaks – Check around your windows, chimney, recessed lighting and doors for drafts and air leaks. This can be a significant source of heat loss in your home. Add caulk, weatherstripping, and insulation to help retain heat and keep cold winter air outside.
  • Update Your Thermostat – Programmable thermostats are an effective way to keep your home warm and comfortable, while also saving you money by keeping your home a little cooler while you’re away.
