Ways to Reduce Your Heating Costs

Santa Rosa may not exactly experience blizzards in the winter, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t get cold. In fact, odds are you’ll be using your heating system plenty this winter season, especially as temperatures drop drastically during the nights. As such, you’re bound to notice a spike in your energy bills; however, you don’t shouldn’t have to just accept these high heating costs – you can do something about it.

Ways to Reduce Your Heating Costs

The following are just a few ways that you can reduce your heating costs this winter:

  • Schedule a furnace tune-up – A tune-up can help to ensure that your furnace runs as effectively and efficiently as possible. Our professional HVAC technicians will thoroughly inspect your furnace and make any required repairs as well as clean and lubricate components as needed.
  • Invest in solar power – Investing in solar power has never been cheaper, especially with 100 percent financing options and the use of solar tax credits. In addition to installing a solar-powered system, we can help you reduce your usage so that you don’t end up overpaying or installing too big of a system. By going solar, you’ll greatly reduce your monthly energy bills, which will result in substantial long-term savings.
  • Replace your filters regularly – Make sure that your heating system can distribute heat throughout your entire home efficiently by cleaning or replacing your air filters when they are dirty. They should be checked every month.
  • Improve your insulation – Better insulation can help to keep the heat your system produces from escaping your home, which means your heating system won’t have to work as hard and use as much energy to replace lost heat.
  • Run your ceiling fans – Believe it or not, but running your ceiling fans can help to make your heating system more efficient. Run your fans in the opposite direction and the blades will help to push rising heat back down, thereby assisting in heating your home more evenly and requiring your heating system to work less hard.

These are just a few methods for reducing your Santa Rosa home’s heating costs this winter.
