Tips to Save on Home Energy Bills


With the winter heating season approaching, here are a few tips to save you some energy and some money this winter:


1). Learn more about energy efficiency solutions. Homeowners have new options when it comes to fueling their home-comfort systems, such as Hybrid Heat by Carrier.


2). Keep equipment maintained. Get an annual service inspection by a certified technician.


3). Change the air filter regularly. Change your filter monthly or as recommended by the manufacturer.


4). Make smart home improvements. Check for air leaks in your duct system and around doors and windows.


5). Remove clutter. Extra clutter near the furnace can obstruct airflow.


6). Add a humidifier. Moist air feels warmer than dry air, so a humidifier might allow you to set your thermostat lower without feeling uncomfortable.


7). Install a programmable thermostat.


8). Consider the bigger finanacial picture. Beyond reducing energy bills, qualifying equipment purchases also offer tax credits.
