Reduce Your Heating Bill This Winter
Are you a resident of Etobicoke? Here are some of my best tips to lower your heating bill.
With the rising cost of utilities, you may want to lower your costs. Heating comprises about 60 per cent of your home’s energy bills during winter. Save your pocketbook and reduce your heating bills with these simple and cost-effective strategies:
Following these little tips can help increase heating efficiency and reduce cost.
- Service your furnace. Clean, lubricate and adjust your unit to save up to 5 per cent on your heating costs. Replace air filters monthly to improve airflow and decrease energy use.
- Remove window screens. Screens can block up to 20 per cent of the sun’s warm rays. Remove your screens and take advantage of nature’s heat.
- Run ceiling fans in reverse. The clockwise direction pushes warm air back down to living areas and recycles up to 10 per cent of your home’s heat.
