3 Ways to Save Money On HVAC Bills, Rochester, New York

When winter rolls in, HVAC bills go up, which is why homeowners everywhere focus on preserving carefully heated indoor air. Fortunately, doing what you can to preserve indoor heating can help you to take the sting out of opening your monthly power statement.

Here are three ways to save money on heating:

Take Advantage of Passive Heating 

HVAC-Rochester-NYLight pouring into your home can create more than a beautiful ambiance. In addition to filling your place with natural brightness, sunshine also contains UV light, which heats the ambient air in your home. To reduce your power bills, open your blinds and curtains during the day, and don’t be afraid to let the light pour in. 

Use Heavy Curtains

After the sun goes down, trap carefully heated air by closing the blinds and using heavy curtains. When you shop for curtains, look for thick fabrics made to reduce heat transfer, and hang them in a way that covers the entire window sash. 

Seal Drafts

When your home was built, contractors worked hard to create an airtight exterior envelope. Unfortunately, over time, that envelope is breached when people make changes, install cables, revamp plumbing, and plant landscaping. These holes in your exterior home envelope can allow carefully heated air to escape, which is why you should focus on sealing holes with spray foam. Speak with an HVAC contractor about testing your home’s indoor heating efficiency and helping you seal your home if there are issues.
