Hot Winter Tips to Stay Warm & Save Money

Eugene Adams Inc. Newsletter Winter 2003/04

We are in for a cold winter, but you can stay warm. Use these energy savings tips to stay warm and comfy in your home while keeping your heating costs down.

 

Perform a pre-season tune-up. Dirt, dust and other contaminants have been building up since last year. Before you turn your furnace on again, have it tuned up and cleaned thoroughly by a professional.

 

Adjust thermostat. Keep your thermostat set to 70 degrees, or lower, during the day and lower the temperature to 65 to 69 degrees at night or when you are not home. a programmable thermostat will do this for you automatically. it will lower the temperature at night while you sleep, then raise the heat when you get up. it can even lower the heat during the day while you're at work and raise it again when it's time for you  to come hom.

 

Change filters. Dirty filters reduce airflow that forces the system to work harder than it needs to. changing your filter once a month only costs $3 or $4 but can reduce your heating bill between 1 and 4 percent.

 

Keep drats out. A small leak around a door or window can be equivalent, in terms of air flow, to removing a brick from the side of your house and letting the wind blow through. Seal those gaps and keep winter winds on the outside.

 

Seal leaks. Check for leaks and gaps around  doors and windows and replace old weather stripping or caulk. This will reduce drafts and can save you as much as 10% on your energy bills.

 

Add sunshine. Use your blinds and curtains to maximum benefit. Keep them open during the day to take advantage of the passive solar heating which will raise the temperature of the house. at night, close the blinds and crutains to conserve the heat.

 

Insulate adequately. Proper insulation will keep the heat indoors. check for adequate insultion in walls, ceilings, basements and attics. Insulate your water heater, too.

 

Replace system. We recommend choosing the highest efficiency system you can afford because a heating system is an investment that will bring value to you this winter and future winters down the road. The increased investment will pay for itself in just a few seasons.
