Winter’s chill can put quite a dent in your wallet, but there are some things you can do that to reduce your heating bill while keeping warm and toasty.* Weatherize around your doors and windows- This is one of the most cost effective ways to conserve energy. If your doors and windows are not sealed, money is flying out of the cracks. Properly sealing your home will make it much more comfortable and your furnace won’t have to work so hard to keep your home heated.
* Install a programmable thermostat- This will save you from wasting energy. Program the thermostat for when you are asleep or away from home for eight hours or more. You won’t be heating an empty house. Programmable thermostats can reduce your heat bill by up to 33%. MTB Heating and Air has several great Wifi programmable thermostat options that will allow you to adjust your thermostat from any location.
* Purchace a whole home humidifier- Winter can be very dry and hard on your skin and sinuses. A humidifier will add moisture to the air which in turn will allow you to lower the temperature in your home. Moister air feels warmer than dry air.
* Get a furnace tune up- A properly working furnace is more efficient and will save you money. Also regular maintenance will extend the life of the equipment.
