Keep Your Energy Bills Lower This Fall With These Simple Steps

We battled the high summer temperatures in Roxboro, North Carolina, and soon, you will need to turn on the furnace to heat your home. No one wants to spend more money on bills than necessary. The following tips can help you to heat your home efficiently and keep your energy bills lower during the heating season.

Install a Programmable Thermostat

Fall is the time of year when the temperature can vary drastically throughout the day. It can be cold in the morning, warm during the day, and cold again in the evening. Installing a programmable thermostat can eliminate the guesswork of setting the temperature. You will be able to maintain a comfortable and energy efficient home day and night. You can set the thermostat to:

  • Turn the heater on before you get up in the morning
  • Lower the temperature during the day when no one is at home
  • Turn the heater on again, so the house is warm and comfortable when you arrive

Heating your home using optimum temperature settings when no one is there is one cause of energy waste.

Insulate Your Attic

Hot air rises, and without sufficient attic insulation, warm air from your heater can escape through the roof. As a result, your furnace will have to work harder to heat your home, leading to higher energy bills. Be sure to have a professional inspect your attic. The right amount and type of insulation will keep the warm air inside.

Maintain Your Heating System

If your HVAC system is working overtime to keep your home warm, you could be reducing the life expectancy of the unit. In addition, without regular maintenance which includes cleaning and servicing, the system will work harder. The extra pressure on the unit increases wear and tear and energy usage. With our maintenance agreement, you can expect professional heater and furnace service.
