While heating is necessary to help you stay comfortable and healthy in the winter, that doesn’t mean you want to spend a fortune to get it, nor do you want to use more energy than you need to. Luckily, our team at Hodge Heating & Air Conditioning of Lake Norman Inc. is here to help. We have a few ideas that can help you keep your home warm this winter while saving energy and money in the process.
- Know How to Use Your Curtains- Your windows can play a large role in how warm or cool your house is. To keep your home as warm as possible in the winter, open your curtains during the day to let the sunlight inside and close them at night to keep that warmth from escaping. If you want to go the extra mile, you may even consider getting insulated curtains.
- Don’t Overuse Ventilator Fans- Ventilator fans can be very useful in your kitchen and bathrooms, since they remove fumes and humidity. However, these fans will suck the heat out of your house quickly if you leave them on too long. Remember to turn them off when you’re not using them.
- Maintain Your Heating System– Regular maintenance involves cleaning and inspecting your heating system to keep it in excellent condition and allow it to operate more efficiently. This means your system won’t have to work as hard to heat your home, and you can enjoy lower energy bills.
These tips are easy and affordable ways to help you heat your home more efficiently. However, if you need a more effective solution, such as a new heating system, we would be happy to help. Contact us today for more information.
