With energy costs rising and inflation through the roof, most of our customers are trying to save money on their Evanston heating and Ogden heating this winter. Fortunately, there are some great ways that you can heat your home without spending quite so much. Here are our top ideas from our Champion Services heating experts for saving money and staying warm this winter.
Insulate Windows and Doors
If you have older doors and windows, it might be worth your while to replace them. Yes, this is expensive, but newer doors and windows are designed to keep more of your hot air inside, where you want it this winter.
If that’s not the right option for you, you can still stop heat loss through your doors and windows. You can buy a home insulation kit from your local hardware store. These have a film that you stick to your windows to help keep the cold air outside, where it belongs. They also keep hot air out in the summer.
Use Your Thermostat Wisely
If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, consider installing one today. You can even get a smart thermostat, which you can control with your mobile phone. Either way, you’ll have more control over how your home’s heater works this winter.
Instead of blasting the heat all day just so the house will be warm when everyone gets home at night, you can set the house to cool down during the day, then warm up again right before you get there.
You can also turn the temperature down at night. Most people prefer to sleep between 60 and 65 degrees, which is a lot cooler than most houses are at night, even in the winter. A programmable thermostat allows you to control this effortlessly and some let you make changes from your phone if your plans change.
Get a More Efficient Furnace
If you’re serious about energy efficiency, invest in a new furnace. The newest models are highly efficient – much more so than older ones are. We can help you find the best Evanston furnace or Ogden furnace for your home, making sure it has both the power and the efficiency that you need.
Sure, a new furnace is expensive. However, if you need one anyway, it’s a great way to save money on heating costs this winter and through many winters to come.
