Heating


• Cover all bare floors. Carpeting or rugs add to comfort and heat retention, especially if there is little or no floor insulation.
• Raise the temperature slowly to keep your bill lower. Quickly raising your heat pump's temperature activates the heat strip, which uses tons of energy.
• Lower your thermostat temperature to the lowest temperature that is comfortable to your family. You may save as much as 3 percent on your energy bill for each degree you lower your thermostat. Reduce your thermostat setting at night and/or when you are away.
• Close the flue in your fireplace and install glass doors to keep in the warm air.
• Limit your use of portable heaters. They’re great for "spot" heating, but can be expensive.
• Keep your thermostat close to the outside temperature.
• Don’t block air vents with drapes and furniture.
• Get an energy-efficient heat pump and you could cut your heating costs in half..
• Change the filters in your heating system every month for optimum efficiency.
• Give your air compressor space to work efficiently. Never stack anything against your HVAC or drape anything over it.
• Heat your home with the sun's help. Leave window shades or blinds open during the daytime. And consider using solar heat to supplement your normal heating source. • Lower your thermostat every time you leave the house.
