How To Save Money & Stay Warm This Winter

Keeping your home warm and the heating bills low at the same time can be difficult. Here are some tips on how to save money and stay warm this winter season.

 

When You’re Not Home

Remember to lower the thermostat whenever you leave the house. This way you’re not heating the house when no one is home and you can save on your energy bills.

Close Those Curtains

A good idea to keep in heat is to close your curtains and blinds at night or when you’re not at home to stop warm air from escaping. If you want to add onto this idea, think about investing in thermal blackout curtains.

Check For Drafts

Making sure you check your home for any drafts, cracks or caulk gaps around windows and doors can easily help you prevent heat from escaping.

Replace Old Windows

Check to ensure you’re not losing precious heat in the winter by replacing old windows with high-quality and energy efficient windows. New windows can keep warm air from escaping and also help block outside noise. Depending on the climate and where you live, windows can be an essential aspect of your home and crucial for maintaining your heating and cooling needs.

Insulate

Ensuring you properly insulate your walls, floors and attic can save you on your total energy costs and makes sure you don’t lose any extra heat through small cracks and holes.

Check Your Fireplace

Closing the damper of your fireplace when you’re not using it can keep your home noticeably warmer.

Maintain Your Systems

By maintaining your heating and cooling systems and keeping them in good condition you can avoid costly repairs and save money on your energy bills.
