How to Cut Heating Costs in Your Home

Do you have high energy bills during the cold months? Are you looking for ways to save money? It's all about strategy; from big tasks to small, simple everyday changes that anyone can do. Learn how to save money on your heating bills this season.

Big Tasks:

Air seal your home: Check the inside and outside of your home for cracks and air leaks around doors and windows. Caulking or weatherstrips will do the job.

Install a programmable or Wi-fi thermostat: These can automatically adjust the temperature in your home based on your daily activities; like reducing the amount heat when you're not home.

Insulate your attic: Heat rises and is lost through your roof. Check your attic for adequate insulation or have a professional conduct an energy test.

Simple Tasks

Adjust the temperature: Save up to 10% annually on heating costs by turning the temperature back 10-15% while you're away.

Close your Fireplace Flue: Keep it open if you have a fire going but close it when it's not in use. Having it open is like an open window where a lot of heat can escape.

Preventative maintenance: This is the best way to avoid your furnace stopping in the middle of winter and ensuring maximum efficiency while saving you money in the long run.

Schedule your annual furnace tune-up before winter begins! For more questions call 72 Degrees Comfort Company at 515-965-7272 or email us at
