Save Money By Winterizing Your Home

There are many low-cost things you can do to winterize your home this winter!  Image title

  • Change your furnace filter. Using an electrostatic or HEPA filter will help eliminate airborne particles such as mold, bacteria, viruses, and pollen while also helping your heater run at a more optimum level.

  • Change the rotation of your ceiling fans to clockwise to push warm air back down into rooms.

  • Winterize AC and water lines. Drain any water out of the lines. Remove window AC units.

  • Turn down your water heater. Lowering the temperature to 120 degrees can lower your water heating costs six to ten percent. Image title

  • Get your HVAC system a tune up. Hire a professional to come out and go over your unit before the weather gets too bad so you won't be stuck in the cold...literally!

  • Seal up the drafts in windows and doors.  According to the U.S. Department of Energy, drafts can waste 5 to 30 percent of your energy use. Roll up a towel or get a more decorative draft snake to put under doors. Caulk windows or add weatherstripping. 

  • Insulate your pipes to prevent freezing and to reduce heating costs. Pre-slit pipe foam can be purchased at most hardware stores.
