Heating Efficiency Tips

Heating is one of the most expensive energy expenses on your monthly bill and your system is used most during the fall and winter.

Here are some tips to help you make your home comfortable without spending an arm and a leg.


Heating your home while you're there and you’re away should be programmed differently, and that does not mean turning it on and off.

Consider installing a programmable thermostat to help with the efficiency of your heating and to help with your energy bill.

When your home is empty, you shouldn’t be heating it, but you also shouldn't be turning it off. Powering the system on and off can actually use more energy than still running it a few degrees lower while you’re gone.


Have you had your seasonal maintenance? Although your HVAC system is made to last many years, it is still crucial to have regular maintenance performed on your unit.

Regular maintenance helps enhance the efficiency and longevity of heating and AC systems. It can also help prevent needs for repairs, by catching any issues early, before they get worse.

After your maintenance appointment, you will have a clearer understanding of your HVAC system's condition.

Replace Your Filter

Replacing your filter routinely is important to the efficiency and lifespan of your system.

This is a part of maintenance that you can complete on your own, at least every three months.

Your filter is in charge of removing airborne particles and pollutants that are harmful to your home, system and health.

If you don’t remember the last time you changed your filter, you will want to check it and possibly change it before the holiday season sets in.
