It is essential to have routine annual maintenance for your HVAC system’s longevity and to keep it running at optimal performance. However, there are a few things that you can do yourself to minimize energy loss this “winter”.
- Seal Any Gaps:
Seal any gaps around windows, doors, and anywhere that your interior is opened to the outdoors
- Check Your Vents and Ducts:
Check your vents and ducts to ensure air is flowing freely
- Use Curtains To Keep Warm Air In:
If you feel like you are experiencing a high heat loss you can consider on switching to a thicker heavier variety of curtains. The thicker barrier will be beneficial to keeping more heat from escaping so easily and should provide positive results to your heating bills.
- Monitor Your Thermostats Effectiveness:
Believe it or not a thermostat not working properly goes unnoticed easy. It is important to pay attention to this because it can result in wasted energy and more importantly money.
