As winter approaches and the cold weather bears down over much of the country, the chilly temps probably have you thinking warm thoughts. With the AC system shut down from most and the heat turned on, it’s important to ensure a warm home by increasing your heating system efficiency, which in turn will reduce energy costs.
To start, seal up drafty doors, windows, and exterior penetrations – all the places where cold, outside air can be drawn into your home. Reduce the amount of unwanted air intake and your home will stay warmer and save on energy usage this winter.
Also, take advantage of the sunshine! Before you leave for work each day, open all of the blinds and shades in your home. This allows the sunlight to heat up the interior, which has the potential to save you a big chuck of change in energy costs.
Finally, the best way to ensure your home is heated properly is by making sure your heating system is functioning at full capacity. If you’ve not had your system maintained in a while then now is the time. At Eastern Tech, we’ve got the knowledge and experience to handle all of your heating and air conditioning repair and maintenance needs. Keep your home warm and toasty this winter, while saving on energy costs, by ensuring your heating system is running right.
