How to Cut Heating Costs This Winter

It isn’t uncommon for homeowners to use more energy during the winter months in an effort to stay warm as the temperatures drop. While this may result in higher heating bills, there are strategies that you can use to keep that increase to a minimum.

Consider Wearing an Extra Layer of Clothing

Instead of turning up the thermostat, it may be easier and less expensive to put on a sweater or a thicker pair of socks. You may also be able to get warm by having a hot beverage or by walking on the treadmill for a few minutes. If you have trouble sleeping at night, putting on an extra blanket may help keep you warm and comfortable without using excess energy.

Get Your Furnace Products Inspected

The technicians at Aircon Heating & Cooling Inc. in Las Cruces can take a variety of steps to ensure that your furnace is working at peak efficiency. It may be possible to replace an air filter, clean a dusty blower motor or ensure that a condensate line is clear of dust or debris. We can also replace a furnace or install new heating system components in your home. When a heating system is working properly, it makes your home safer and less costly to keep it warm.

Inspect the Thermostat

If the thermostat isn’t working properly, the entire heating system may use more energy than necessary to keep your home at a consistent temperature. Thermostats could malfunction if they are placed in areas with too much sunlight or not placed level on a wall. It is also a good idea to program the thermostat so that the home is warmer when people are home and awake and cooler when they are at work or asleep.
