Stuck in a predicament between keeping your home at a comfortable temperature and trying not to spend a fortune on your gas bills? With energy prices on the rise and temperatures quickly dropping, this problem is becoming more and more widespread. With the tips below, you can keep your family warm this winter while keeping cash in your wallet!
Get With The Program
Programmable thermostats are great for homeowners who want to keep energy use at a minimum. This device gives you the ability to set multiple schedules for your home’s heating system – so it shuts down when nobody is home and kicks back on when you arrive.
Turn On Your Ceiling Fan (In Reverse)
Did you know that you can use your ceiling fan in the winter? Turning your fan on in reverse will help to draw the warm air that has risen to the ceiling back down to the living space. Keep the setting on the lowest speed so the updraft moves slowly.
This is your best line of defense against a mid-winter furnace breakdown. Call Dean’s Professional Plumbing to come by and check the gas valves and the heat exchanger so your system will run effectively and efficiently all winter.
By following these tips, you will definitely see a reduction on your gas bills. You’ll also be able to sit down and relax in a comfortable home environment on the coldest winter days!
