Spend Less On Your Heating Bill This Winter With These Easy Fixes
Would you like to save money on your heating bill this winter? Of course, you would! Here are a few simple ways to stay warm and cozy this year without emptying your wallet:
Rearrange Your Furniture
Find all of the heating vents in your home. Are any of them trapped beneath your bed or wedged right up against your sofa? If so, you’re wasting money to heat air that isn’t reaching most of your home. Shift your furniture away from vents and radiators to get warmth where you need it.
Switch Out Your Sheets
If you put flannel sheets on your bed, then you will feel so much cozier at night. That extra warmth will make it easier to lower your thermostat in the evenings. A flannel blanket for the back of your couch is another great purchase!
Eliminate Window Drafts
Often, the warm air inside your home is sneaking out through your windows. Fortunately, this is an easy fix. Plug up the area between the sash and window frame with clay rope caulking or adhesive V-seal weather stripping. You can also stop cold air from coming through the window pane with a window film kit.
Turn on a Humidifier
The moisture in humid air holds onto heat better, which makes it feel warmer against your skin. Therefore, increasing the humidity in your home can help you feel warmer, even if the air temperature isn’t any higher.
Schedule a Furnace Tune-Up
At AJM Mechanical HVAC, we know the importance of regular furnace maintenance to keep your heating system running efficiently. When our technicians give your furnace a tune-up, we’ll ensure that your system is working as well as possible and offer preventative services to keep your heat running without issue all season long.
Clean Your Ducts
When dust and debris gather in your vents, it can make it difficult for warm air to travel through your home. This makes your heating system work harder, waste energy, and cost you money. Fortunately, our residential and commercial HVAC services near Bucks County include ductwork cleaning.
