Now that fall is officially here this means that cooler weather has arrived as well and winter is also on the way. This means that you will be most interest in saving money on your energy costs.
Even though you may have had a high energy bill in years past during the winter, the good news is that you can save money on energy costs during the winter by following these tips.
Tip #1 – Weatherize Your Home To Start Saving Money
If you haven’t weatherized your home this year, now is the perfect time to get it done before it snows.
To weatherize your home, you will need to check the seal around all of the doors and windows on your house to make sure that air can’t escape your home when you have your furnace turned on.
Besides checking doors and windows, you should also reverse your ceiling fan blades to make sure that they are spinning counterclockwise.
Tip #2 – Invest In Throw Rugs
If your home has wood flooring, you should invest in throw rugs to cover those bare floors with throw rugs during the winter. This will help to start saving money, insulate your home, keep heat from escaping through the floorboards of your home and also keep your feet warm as well!
Tip #3 – Purchase Flannel Curtains
Flannel curtains are an effective way to keep warm air from escaping your home, especially if you have older windows! Remember to keep your curtains open during the day and turn on at least one fan in your home while you are away because you want air circulation in your home since this also stops winter mold growth.
Tip #4 – Get A Furnace Tune-Up
Last of all, but most important, you should also get a furnace tune-up if your furnace hasn’t been tuned up in at least one year or it’s showing signs of age.
Furnace tune-ups are a cost-effective way to ensure that you are saving money, and your central heating works normally during the winter and keeps your nice and warm!
