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:

  1. Open south-facing window coverings. South-facing windows allow natural light to heat your home. Passive solar heating warms your home without running utilities.
  1. Close doors. Closing off unused parts of your home will eliminate energy waste and keep other rooms warm.
  1. 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.
