Heating and Cooling Professionals Share 3 Tips to Heat Your Home Efficiently, Lincoln, Alabama

You want to save on your utility bill, but you also want to be comfortable. There’s a way you can do both. Alabama Cooling & Heating in Birmingham knows all about keeping homes warm. Their heating and cooling professionals have put together a list of three tips to efficiently keep your home cozy this fall and winter.

3 Home Heating Tips

Protect Your Home Against Drafts

Caulking around your windows and applying weather-stripping around doors are some simple ways to keep out drafts. Check that no cold air is coming through gaps around your electrical outlets. You can also keep warmth in and cold out by insulating your attic. Closing your fireplace flue and locking doors and windows are some things you can do every day of the year to help your home be more energy efficient.

Check Your Thermostat

Make sure the temperature stays within a narrow range, so your furnace doesn’t have to work too hard to get the temperature back up to your comfort level. Don’t set your thermostat too low, though, or you’ll risk having your pipes burst.

Perform Maintenance

Schedule a checkup with your HVAC services company. Regular maintenance on your furnace can help it retain 95% of its efficiency over its lifetime. Change furnace filters once a month to keep them from getting dirty and affecting performance. Also, check that your water heater isn’t turned up too high, and reset it if it is.
