As the weather cools down, home buyers across the nation will start turning on the heat and bracing for the accompanying energy bill. Whether your home is heated using electricity, gas or oil, heating is usually the largest bill, so it goes without saying that lowering this monthly bill is a priority. We have you covered with five great ways to lower your heating bill.

1. Install a programmable thermostat
Programmable thermostats are becoming increasingly affordable, and can take a serious bite out of that heating bill. These thermostats can decrease the amount of heat being used at specific time periods, for example when no one is home. Some modern programmable thermostats - called “smart” thermostats- can even sense when you are on your way home by connecting with your mobile device.

2. Reverse your ceiling fan
Everyone knows that a ceiling fan can save you money on cooling in the summer by blowing cold air over your skin, but did you know that it can also save you money in the winter by redistributing warm air? Reverse the direction of your ceiling fan so that it sucks cool air up. This will displace the warm air that naturally accumulates around the ceiling, forcing it to flow down along the walls and back to the floor. According to Del Mar Fans & Lighting, this can save you up to 15 percent on your winter heating bills if you lower the thermostat to maintain the same temperature.

3. Use blinds and drapes strategically
If you have south-facing windows that let in significant light, they can actually let in more heat than they let out during the day. Light passes easily through windows, but once it strikes something inside it turns into heat. This heat has trouble passing through glass. We call this the greenhouse effect.

This means that you should leave your south facing window – or any windows that get significant daytime light – uncovered throughout the day. At night, when temperatures drop and light fades, pull the drapes and blinds down to keep that heat inside.

4. Invest in caulk
Caulk is cheap – heating a house is not. For less than $5 at your local home goods store, you can purchase weather caulking to seal the tiny gaps around your windows. According to One Hundred Dollars a Month, homes lose about one-third of their heat through windows and doors, so this is an important investment of time.

5. Purchase a home warranty
While an HMS® Home Warranty won’t do anything to keep your heating bills down when everything is going smoothly, it will be there when the worst happens. A mechanical failure to a heating system can be a blow to even the most conservatively planned budget. A home warranty can help to hedge against the risk of an expensive repair or replacement.

While heating will still likely be your largest utility bill, using these tips can help to save you money and keep you feeling warm.

HOME MAINTENANCE REMINDERS – For ‘Fall Back Season’

 

Many homeowners use the bi-annual time change as a reminder for home maintenance items. Here are a few to start off your list!

Changing air filters

Every few months, the air filter in a home’s heating system needs to be cleaned or replaced, depending on its type. Failure to do this can result in a less efficient heating system, overworked fans and a significant decrease in air quality. Filters are readily available in your local home improvement stores, and perhaps even in the home cleaning aisle of your local supermarket.

Cleaning dryer ducts

While anyone who has done his or her own laundry knows that a dryer’s filter screen needs to be cleaned between loads, even experienced homeowners don’t know that it is important to regularly clean out the vent to the outside of the home. Over time, bits of lint that aren’t caught by the lint trap will coat the inside of the dryer vent. If left like this, the dryer will work less efficiently, but more importantly, there is a significant risk of fire.

Draining the water heater

Over time, water heaters accumulate sediment toward the bottom of the tank. This sediment can decrease a home’s hot water quality and diminish the heater’s ability to work efficiently. This sediment removed through yearly draining and cleaning, but many homeowners neglect this vital task. Draining the water heater on a consistent schedule will provide better water quality, lower energy bills and a longer lifespan for the appliance.

Change out batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms

It is important to have a smoke alarm on every level of your home and outside each bedroom. If they are wired into the electrical system they should be interconnected. Newer homes will meet these requirements, but if you have an older home, it is important to make sure you have adequate smoke alarm protection. Smoke detectors that are wired into the home’s electrical system will have a battery backup so the detectors will function if the power is out. Detectors that are added after the home was built often are battery-powered only and batteries will need to be tested and or replaced.

 

Whether it’s time to fall back or spring forward, remembering to take care of these items will  significantly help improve the  efficiency and the longest possible useful life of the unit.
