As the weather becomes cooler and cooler, more and more Canadian homeowners are turning on their heating systems for the winter ahead. During the winter, we rely on our heating systems to keep us warm and safe, but of course, heating a home can be very pricey. If you’re interested in learning how you can save money while keeping your home comfortable this winter, follow these simple and effective energy-saving tips.
Change Furnace Filter
One of the easiest and most effective energy-saving tips this winter is to simply change your furnace filter. A clogged or dirty furnace filter can result in your furnace losing its efficiency as it has to work harder to produce clean air through a blocked passageway. A great way to keep your furnace working efficiently and to save money on utility bills is to change your furnace filter every 90 days!
Clear Your Vents
It’s very easy for floor vents to become blocked by dust, dirt, hair, and other debris, or even by curtains and rugs. One of our most simple energy-saving tips is to clean your vents regularly, especially if you live in a home with small children or animals. If your vents are clogged, your furnace has to work harder to push air into your home, costing you energy and money on your utility bills.
Consider Using A Smart Thermostat
Smart thermostats will learn your schedule and save you money by decreasing the temperature of your home when no one is there, and increasing the temperature when everyone is home for the night. This kind of automated temperature regulation will keep your home warm when you need it and save you money on your utility bills each month.
Invest In A High-Efficiency Furnace, Boiler, Or Heat Pump
Although high-efficiency heating systems will cost more money upfront than a regular system, they’re more than worth the initial investment as high-efficiency furnaces, boilers, and heat pumps will save you significant money in energy costs throughout their whole lifespan. By purchasing a high-efficiency heating system, you’re giving yourself significantly reduced heating and cooling costs for the next ten to thirty years.
Schedule Annual Preventative Maintenance
One of the most crucial energy-saving tips is to ensure that you schedule preventative maintenance for your heating system once a year. When you book preventive maintenance, an expert technician from Fahrhall will perform a thorough inspection and cleaning of your heating system to ensure that it’s working as efficiently as possible, saving you money and energy going forward. Have peace of mind that none of the energy you’re paying for is being wasted by scheduling annual preventative maintenance with the experts at Fahrhall.
