Heating and Cooling Energy Saving Tips!

  • To stop air leakage from your home, which can reduce the efficiency of your heating system, make sure your walls are weatherproofed. Stripping and caulking surfaces, especially around windows and doors, can help make sure they’re water and wind tight. The average home has enough leaks around windows and doors to equal one open 3 by 3 foot window.
  • Consider installing a programmable thermostat. When set and used properly, this device can save as much as $150 in energy costs per year.
  • A simple step like insulating your roof could lead to considerable savings on fuel bills because your house will hold onto heat better and require less heating. Choose green insulating materials whenever possible, like recycled paper insulation or natural fibers like wool.
  • Get an annual furnace check up. Get a routine maintenance and inspection of your heating system each autumn to make sure it is in good working order. Regular preseason check-ups can reduce your fuel consumption and maintenance costs.
  • Lower your thermostat if you are gone four hours or more. Keep in mind it costs less money to reheat your home than it does to keep it warm while you’re out.
  • Dust and vacuum vents on a regular basis in order to maintain free airflow.
  • Electric heating loses 90% of its energy due to inefficient transmission through the grid system and through electrical appliances that aren’t as energy efficient as they could be. Try switching to other, more efficient, energy sources.
  • Leaks in the basement can cost energy dollars as well as comfort. Seal drafts in the basement.
  • Electric wall plugs and switches can allow cold air in. Purchase simple-to-install, pre-cut foam gaskets that fit behind the switch plate and effectively prevent leaks.
  • Removing your unit air conditioner from the window prior to winter, this will help cut down on drafts. If you do plan to leave the unit in the window, install a cover over the unit.
  • Keep your chimney closed when not in use. That way, warm air stays in the house.
  • Keep blinds and drapes closed during evening hours to block drafty window areas.
