As spring has arrived and the mild weather is upon us, we have some tips for heating your home and keeping warm more cost effectively.
In milder spring weather, you may not need to use your heating system as often as you do in the winter. Here are some tips to help you efficiently heat your home during this time:
Use natural light: Open your curtains and blinds during the day to let natural light in. This will help warm up your home naturally, and you won't need to rely on your heating system as much.
Adjust your thermostat: Set your thermostat to a lower temperature when you're at home during the day, and use blankets or sweaters to stay warm. You can also set the thermostat to a lower temperature when you're away from home.
Use ceiling fans: If you have ceiling fans, use them to circulate the air in your home. Set the fans to rotate clockwise, as this will help distribute warm air throughout the room.
Keep windows and doors closed: Make sure your windows and doors are closed tightly to prevent drafts from entering your home. This will help keep warm air in and cold air out.
Use space heaters: If you only need to heat a small area of your home, consider using a space heater instead of your central heating system. This can help you save energy and reduce your heating bill.
Schedule HVAR maintenance: Make sure your HVAR system is running efficiently by scheduling a maintenance check. This can help identify any potential problems early and ensure that your system is running at peak efficiency.
By following these tips, you can efficiently heat your home in milder spring weather and save on your energy bill.
