Summer was great, but we’re looking forward to the fall season! We rounded up some helpful tips that may help you cut down on energy usage this fall.
- Heating system check-up. This fall season we suggest you get a heating system maintenance check. This helps determine if your system is up to snuff or if any repairs will be required to ensure the system is running efficiently.
- Lower your thermostat. Before leaving the house, lower your thermostat by 10 degrees and turn it back up when you come home. This small change could help you save about 10% on your heating bill.
- Double check your home’s insulation. Did you know that properly installed insulation can help reduce heating costs in your home? Check the insulation of your home to help cut back on your energy usage this fall.
- Seal it in. Use caulk around the house as a way of sealing any air leaks. By closing all openings, especially around the windows, you could save between 10% - 20% in energy usage.
