The sun sets earlier, the house gets colder and your bills go up. That’s life in the winter for a lot of us. Piling on layers and blankets isn’t always a viable solution, so consider these tips for reducing your winter utility bills:
- Inspect your home for any areas, particularly around windows and doors, that might need to be sealed in order to keep heat from escaping and stop cold air from seeping in.
- Check your radiators and vents to make sure that they are not blocked so that warm air can circulate more efficiently through your home.
- Use a programmable thermostat to lower the temperature when you are not home and warm things up before you return.
- Inspect your furnace filter and replace it if it is dirty. Consider purchasing a reusable filter that can be periodically cleaned rather than thrown out and replaced.
- Close vents and shut doors to rooms that are not being used in order to make it easier for the rooms that you are using to be nice and toasty.
