4 Tips for Saving on Winter Heating Expenses, Canandaigua, New York

When temperatures drop, the cost of heating your home can increase. However, with a few simple steps, you can lower heating costs and minimize your risk of needing HVAC repair. The information below should help you do this.

4 Ways to Reduce Heating Costs this Winter

1. Replace Your Furnace Filter

HVAC repairFurnace filters remove dust and debris from the air before it enters the blower chamber. A dirty filter clogs airflow and causes the furnace to work longer and harder than it should. It increases heating costs, shortens the life of the furnace, and leads to more frequent HVAC repair. For best results, change filters every 60 to 90 days, or every 30 days if you have a smoker or pet in the household.

2. Install Weather Stripping & Caulk

Drafts and leaks account for a considerable amount of heat loss in the average home. To minimize this, apply weather stripping around the edges of every exterior door. Caulk around the edges of windows, especially if you notice cool air or drafts. 

3. Install a Digital Thermostat

A digital, programmable thermostat lets you automatically adjust the temperature of your house. You can set the device to lower temperatures whenever you are at work or at night while everyone is sleeping. Then, you can program it to return temperatures to more comfortable levels a half hour before waking or returning home from work.

4. Schedule Yearly HVAC Maintenance

Each year, have a central heating and cooling professional tune up your system. They'll clean the blower chamber, oil the motor, replace the filter, and tighten or replace the belts. It keeps the furnace running and blowing warm air efficiently and saves on heating and electrical costs.
