Reasons Why Your Heating Bill Is Too High This Winter

One common problem that many people have to deal with during the winter months is opening up their mail to find a high heating bill.

Thankfully, there are a wide variety of things that you can do to lower your heating bill during the winter months, including the following:

Invest In A Programmable Thermostat – Purchasing a programmable ‘smart’ thermostat is one of the first things you can do to lower your heating bill during the winter.

A programmable thermostat is going to remember the ‘ideal’ temperature for your home during the winter months. This will eliminate people in your home having to turn the heat up and it will also eliminate fluctuations in your heating bill.

Buy Insulated Curtains – Let’s say that your home has older windows that you can’t replace, because you’re a renter, or you’re the homeowner and don’t have a budget to replace them now.

Thankfully, energy-efficient curtains will eliminate any cold air, or draft from those windows and assist in keeping your home insulated during the winter months.

Besides weatherizing your windows by adding the insulated curtains, you should also insulate your front door as well since poorly insulated front doors often contributed to a drafty house during the winter months.

Get An HVAC Inspection – If it’s been a while since you last had your HVAC unit inspected, it may be a smart decision to schedule an inspection ASAP.

Your HVAC could be in dire need of maintenance, or your home may have leaky ductwork and the only way to know what’s going on at your home is to hire a heating company like Dave’s Cooling and Heating, to come out to your home for a full HVAC inspection.
