How To Save On Heating Your Home This Winter


Everyone is feeling the crunch this year on our funds as covid tears through us on a global scale. We are trying to save money left right and centre and can’t seem to catch a break. The best way to save what you currently have and try not to lose anymore would be to cut back on current expenses creating less of a hit when paydays come around. Here are some simple ways to help save on your heating costs this year and put more money in your pockets. 

Caulk and seal your windows and doors to keep drafts from creeping in and warm air from creeping out. If you can’t seal them try using the shrink wrap for windows they sell at all hardware stores. All you do is apply sticky tape around the frame and place the film right around the window, you blow dry it tight to create and simple seal and trap your heat inside. 

Maintain your heaters and furnace to ensure everything is working at its best. Many furnaces require filter replacement regularly to keep it running smooth so check and see if this is required in your home. Air duct cleaning is a service that is a must especially if you have a furnace blowing in constantly, if your airways are clogged the warm air can’t circulate and heat the whole home efficiently. 

Try layering up on clothing to keep your heat down this year rather than turning it up and costing you more. Just by putting on a sweater you are saving a couple bucks every week. This may not seem like a lot at first but all that money adds up and you end up spending a lot more on heating than you really need to. Many utility services that bill you have different tiers of payments depending on how much power you use and if you make it passed a certain amount your bill jumps substantially more. Keep an eye on your bill and take a look at how your paying for electricity and heating you may find other ways to save.
