How to Save on Heating Bills This Winter

Save Heating BillsWhile winter hasn’t officially started yet, the frigid cold temperatures have certainly appeared and sent many people turning up their thermostat. Unfortunately, adjusting your thermostat up and down is not the most effective way to stay warm and it will also cost you a pretty penny when it comes time to pay your heating bill. Fortunately, our trained experts at Northern’s One Hour offer two tips for how to save on heating bills during the cold winter months.

 1. Schedule Regular Maintenance

You might be surprised to learn that scheduling regular heater maintenance (even during warmer months) will help prevent problems and repairs during the cold winter months. It is important to ensure that your heating system is consistently running smooth and prepared to handle the excessive use that is typical during cold temperatures. If you are wondering how to save on heating bills, one of the best ways is to change your filter regularly. Our trained technicians can inspect and change your filters each month.

2. Consider Zone Heating

If you are still trying to find out how to save on heating bills when the temperature dips below freezing, consider zone heating. This idea basically involves planning and considering which areas of your home need to be heated most. A traditional method for zone heating is to use space heaters; however, our technicians are proud to offer zone heating which involves controlling different areas or zones in your home with one thermostat. This method helps reduce heating costs by allowing you to control which areas of your home are heated when and for how long.
