One on hand, you want to keep your home nice and warm all winter long.
On the other hand, you don’t want to end up spending a fortune to do so.
The first blog of 2017 looked at 4 ways to save money on heating during the coldest months of the year.
In short, they are:
- Use a humidifier
- Don’t heat empty rooms
- Keep a consistent maintenance schedule
- Think smart when heating common spaces
Lately, it seems that whenever you turn on the news, there’s always a story about high energy costs.
However, by following the tips featured in January’s blog, you’ll keep more money where it belongs: In your pocket.
In January, it was all about saving money on heating.
In May, with spring around the corner, the focus shifted on how to save money on air conditioning.
Although summer 2017 felt more rainy than sunny, there were a few super-hot days scattered here and there.
And those were the days you needed your home cooling system to be at its best.
Summer 2018 is expected to be – according to the almanac – “hotter than usual.”
So saving every penny you can on your air conditioner is a wise move.
If you recall, September 2017 is when the real summer weather arrived in Durham Region.
It was hot.
It was dry.
It was sunny.
It was great.
It was also a hard time to think about booking your fall furnace tune-up maintenance visit.
However, there are three important reasons to have your furnace inspected once summer ends (even if the weather doesn’t really feel like it):
- Save money
- Protect your family
- Peace of mind
Although fall won’t come around for a long time (the first day of autumn in 2018 is Saturday, September 22; in case you were wondering), it’s never too early to think about getting your furnace ready for the season.
It’s a question many homeowners throughout the area ask:
- “Why is the air inside my house so dry at this time of year?”
So in November, we wrote a blog about it.
There are three main factors with contribute to dry indoor air quality:
- Airborne allergens
- Excessive dust
Fortunately, there are three easy-to-implement solutions which can add humidity to your home:
If you find the air inside your home super dry, it could because of the factors listed above.
Smart tips when heating your home this winter
There’s no telling how low the temperatures will get this winter.
In addition to a home heating system check-up, there are other things you can do to keep your furnace running smoothly all season long:
- Keep outside vents free and clear of debris
- Lower your thermostat a few degrees (and put on a warm sweater too)
- Open vents in empty or unused rooms (this helps with consistent air flow through your home)
- Keep furniture, tables, etc. away from vents
