Big and Small Changes that Can Impact Your Heating Bill

With winter in full swing, no doubt your heater is getting some pretty frequent use. With warmer days still in the distant future, many people are looking for ways to cut heating costs and save some money through the winter. At Phoenix Air Conditioning, LLC, our expert heating technicians share some tips—both big and small—that you can utilize to cut the costs on your heating bill.

Stop wasting money this winter with these helpful steps:

Easy Changes to Make

  • Utilize the sun – The sun is your best friend when it comes to free heating. During the day, open up your curtains and blinds to let the sun warm your home through the windows.
  • Turn down the heat – Saving money is as easy as turning down your thermostat. Even turning it down a single degree can impact your bills. Also, ensuring that you aren’t wasting heat when no one is at home is a must.
  • Buy an electric blanket – If you are worried about turning the thermostat down, purchasing an electric blanket can help keep you comfortable during those winter nights. Not only will you be staying warm and toasty, but you’ll be saving money too.

Bigger Changes Worth the Investment

  • Upgrade your heater – Buying a newer, more efficient heater or furnace can quickly save you the money you invested in it. If your unit is over 10 years old, it could be inefficiently heating your home and costing you a lot more in bills than necessary.
  • Replace your insulation – The insulation in your attic is one of the best ways to defeat heat loss in your home. Over time, the insulation will break down and not be as efficient. Replacing your attic’s insulation can keep the heat in and keep your home warm without wasting the energy.
