That’s why we’ve jotted down a few furnace tips to help keep heating bills from skyrocketing.


 
To begin reducing your heating bills and enhancing your energy efficiency this winter, consider:
  • Keeping your blinds open during the warmest parts of the day to allow sunlight in, helping warm your home naturally.
  • Sealing cracks and crevices around your home’s windows and doors with caulk or weather stripping.
  • Installing a programmable thermostat so that you can more precisely control the temperature in your home, which will also enhance energy efficiency.
  • Cleaning or replacing your furnace filter regularly.
  • Checking your home's heating vents to ensure they are open and aren’t blocked by any obstructions
  • Replacing your old furnace with a newer, more efficient model if your current furnace is more than 15 years old.
  • Putting insulation in your attic to keep the heat trapped inside.
  • Checking your roof to ensure your shingles are intact, and that there aren’t holes or cracks that will need to be sealed.
