Winter Energy Savings Tips! How to Save Before the Holidays!

Energy Saving

The holidays are the time of year when our spending can sneak up on us. Black Friday and Cyber Monday could be just the start of your holiday spending spree! We want you to save as much as possible this holiday season with these helpful winter savings tips.

1. Keep your HVAC System Running

You may think that turning your heat off during the day when no one is home is saving you money, when it could be more taxing on your system. The constant starting and stopping of your HVAC system costs you more in energy and wear than it gets you in savings.

It is better to change your thermostat based on the activity levels in your home. If no one is home during the day, turn your heat back 8 degrees lower than your comfortable setting.

2. Use your ceiling fan…yes we mean it.

If you have a ceiling fan in your home, it could give you more control over your home’s ventilation. Have your fan rotate clockwise during the fall and winter months, to redistribute warm air that typically rises in the room. This could save you up to 15% of your heating costs!

  1. Only heat the rooms you use.

If there are certain rooms in your house that are not in use daily (guest room, basements, storage areas), close off the vents in those rooms to redistribute the heat throughout the rooms in your home that are in use. It makes no sense to heat rooms that no one steps foot in!

3. Put your dollars saved towards insulation.

Your home may not be using heat as efficiently as possible due to areas between windows or doors allowing warm air to escape. Foam weather strips are an inexpensive way to save money on your energy bill overall.
