It's cold outside in Frankfort, IL, and nearby areas. Higher heating expenses are also a reality this season with lower temperatures. Fortunately, there are several methods to cut your heating costs this winter.
You can save money on your gas and electricity bills by being proactive. Not only will you save money, but you'll be more comfortable as well. Our heating specialists at Climate Control Systems have you covered, from installing high-efficiency equipment to performing repairs on almost all furnace and boiler brands, including Trane, Ruud, Amana, Goodman, and Mitsubishi.
Simple Ways to Lower Your Heating Bills
Install High-Efficiency Heating Equipment:
- Consider replacing your old, inefficient furnace with a modern high-efficiency unit if it's over 12 years old and having problems. New high-efficiency boilers and furnaces operate more efficiently and require less gas or electricity to generate heat for your house. A new high-efficiency boiler or furnace will save you money in the long term.
- Installing a programmable thermostat is not only more cost-effective but it's also more straightforward and less complicated than you think. After Climate Control Systems installs a programmable thermostat, we will review the controls with you. We will review all the settings as well when we install a smart thermostat, like an Ecobee. Homeowners may use a programmable or smart thermostat to establish schedules to lower temperatures at night or while working. Smart thermostats provide even more control over customized preferences when connected to wifi. All of these features result in lower heating expenses.
Home Heating Hacks:
- Perhaps the simplest method to decrease your heating costs is to employ simple ways to keep cold air from entering your house. Consider covering your home's windows if they are drafty. If you detect drafts at doors, inspect the weatherstripping and replace it if necessary. Do you have any unused rooms in your home? Another approach to save energy is to close vents and doors in these spaces. If you have uneven heating in areas of your house, you can install a sensor with your existing system, or another option is also a ductless system, with options to control the temperature on a per-room basis.
Heat only the rooms in which you reside. However, if there is plumbing outside these rooms' walls, be careful. To prevent frozen pipes, you'll need to heat these spaces. Finally, lowering your thermostat setting will save you money on your energy bills this winter. It's always possible to wear several layers of clothing and wrap yourself in blankets for additional warmth.
