Saving money on your heating bills in the winter always starts with safety. Have your furnace inspected, cleaned and serviced by a technician like the Arlington technician before cold weather arrives. If your system have served their time, it is no surprise when your it suddenly fails. If it does, call in a technician and facilitate a new heater installation. And since you’re doing inspections you might as well take a look at your circuit breakers too so you are sure they are functioning properly. The same goes for your chimney and fireplace or wood stove if you are using one.

Make your home as airtight as possible by sealing leaks around windows and doors.  Install shades and draperies to insulate windows.

A tapestry or blanket hung on a bedroom wall will help take the chill off an outside wall. 

Turning down the thermostat will save 1% for every degree it is lowered over an eight-hour period.

Shut off rooms or attic spaces that are not used often and consider a space heater for the area where the family gathers in the evening. If you’re having problems with your heater, then you can contact the professionals at A Quality HVAC Services to take a look. Experts in Furnace Maintenance in Greensboro can also help you maintain the energy efficiency of your heating system which may result to lower heating bills. You may also contact a reliable electrician if you have electrical problems.

A humidifier will make lower temperatures more comfortable. 

Use cold water for laundry.
