How to Cut Down on Heating Costs
Utilities are a big cost for many homeowners — especially in the winter. Here are three tips to conserve your home’s heat:
- Open south-facing window coverings. South-facing windows allow natural light to heat your home. Passive solar heating warms your home without running utilities.
- Close doors. Closing off unused parts of your home will eliminate energy waste and keep other rooms warm.
- Have your furnace inspected. A furnace professional will spot any potential problems and ensure that your unit is working correctly. Inefficient furnaces will increase your utility costs.
