Here are some simple things that you can do to lower your heating bills:
- Lower your thermostat. You can greatly reduce your heating bills by lowering your thermostat a few degrees. Lowering the temperature drastically when you leave or are asleep helps a lot. Your house will quickly reheat when needed.
- Change filters. By changing your furnace filters monthly, you can make a clear flow of air, ensuring that you are not overworking your furnace.
- Open shades. Open the shades or blinds on the windows on the south side of your home during the daylight hours and close them at night. This will naturally heat your home with the sunlight.
