Especially during the coldest days of the year, your heating system is incredibly important in your home. You depend your winter comfort on it, making it the busiest appliance for the entire season. However, no one wants to pay an arm and a leg for the comfort it gives. With these heating tips from Hightower Service, you won’t have to. Proper Insulation One of the factors that contribute to skyrocketing heating bill is poor insulation. That’s why it’s important to seal your homes tightly to save more energy. After all, you don’t want to pay the heating bill for the entire neighborhood. Be sure that your home is properly insulated. You can start by sealing leaky parts such as the corners of your windows and doors. There are over-the-counter sealants and plastic covers that you can use to cover them. Covering your doors and windows will not just protect them from cold drafts but helps keep heat inside. Programmable Thermostats If you want to cut down on your expenses, invest in a programmable thermostat. This can help you save energy big time, especially when you’re out for work. Temperature changes from time to time and a constant temperature inside can cool or heat your home too much, wasting lots of energy. Programmable thermostat can easily be set up to keep your home cozy when you arrive from work. You don’t need to worry about the temperature when you’re away and when you arrive from work. You can preset the temperature, so you’ll wake up or arrive at home with a cozy temperature to greet you. Proper Humidity You know how important proper humidity level is. It’s a factor that greatly affects the comfort level inside your home. In winter, air becomes so dry causing your skin to dry and wood furniture to deteriorate. The best thing that you can do to regulate humidity level is to invest in a humidification system. This not just helps control moisture, but it also works with your HVAC system to save energy. With this, you can turn the thermostat down a few degrees lower without compromising your comfort. Don’t let winter bring pain to your pocket.
