Reducing Your Winter Energy Bills
There are several steps that you can take to reduce your energy bills when it starts to get cold outside in the winter. Wellmann Heating & Air, Inc understands the need to have a fully functional furnace, so we offer comprehensive services to keep yours running as smoothly as possible. We can explain the different ways that you could save money throughout the winter.
Improve Your Insulation
Having proper insulation in your walls and roof is important for keeping heat from escaping through the walls. Simple steps, such as installing weatherstripping around doors and windows, could greatly reduce the amount of heat that’s lost through small cracks and holes in your house.
Humidify Your Home
Humid air feels warmer than dry air. Instead of turning up the thermostat, consider plugging in a humidifier. There are many benefits to moist air in your home.
Turn Down the Temperature at Night
It’s easy to stay warm at night by adding a warm blanket to your bed. You could reduce your energy bills by 10 percent by dropping your thermostat by 10 degrees for eight hours every night.
Properly Maintain Your Furnace
Getting a regular tune-up for your furnace could ensure that it’s working as efficiently as possible. Having a professional perform adjustments can keep everything running smoothly. Wellmann Heating & Air, Inc can take a look at your furnace and advise on any repairs needed because we know how cold it can get in Lincoln.
Use Solar Energy
If you have windows that are facing south, open your shades throughout the day and let the sun heat the room. Solar energy is free and easy to use. When the sun sets, close all window coverings in order to minimize heat loss through the glass.
