  1. Keep draperies and window shades on the south side windows open during the day to allow sunlight to enter. This adds additional heat in your home. Close them at night.
  2. Make sure warm air grills and registers are not blocked by furniture, drapes, or rugs/carpets. This ensures that warm air does get into your home spaces that should be heated.
  3. Install a humidifier. Most people know that lowering the thermostat will save money on their heating bills. To make lower thermostat settings more comfortable, add a humidifier in your home. In addition to lower utility bills at lower settings, humidifiers help lower the susceptibility to infection. The America Society of Otolaryngology states that overly dry environments make people more susceptible to infections. Call us at the number below. We would be happy to install a humidifier in your home.
  4. Change your filters. Clogged filters cause your HVAC system to work harder (it’s like breathing through a paper bag), using more energy. This means that dirty filters cause you to write larger checks to the utility company!
