Winter Energy-Saving Tips
Easy Ways to Save Energy This Winter
When cold weather arrives in Massachusetts, we know that saving money is on the top of every homeowner’s winter wish list. Use these simple industry-approved tricks to save valuable heat and lower your utility bills. This way, you can keep your family nice and cozy without breaking the bank.
- Schedule a Tune-Up
Just one visit from your Noonan Energy HVAC specialist can cut annual energy costs by up to 10%! An annual tune-up will make sure that your equipment is operating at peak performance and reduce the likelihood of a costly breakdown in the dead of winter.
- Let There Be Light
There’s nothing quite like a bluebird winter day in the Northeast! Open curtains on south-facing windows during the day to let the sunlight warm your living space. Indoor temperatures will naturally rise so that your heating system won’t have to work as hard. Don’t forget to close curtains at night to keep the heat in!
- Seal Drafts
Don’t let air leaks waste your valuable heating fuel! Inspect areas like windows and doors for drafts. Add caulk or weatherstripping to seal any leaks. Want to make sure your home is as energy-efficient as possible? Schedule an energy audit to find out if there are other unknown areas where heat is escaping.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
Make the most of your energy use with a programmable thermostat. Set the thermostat to automatically lower the temperature during times that you are out of the house or asleep.
- Consider an Upgrade
If your current heating system is 15 years or older, you can significantly lower you heating bills by installing a high-efficiency model. High-efficiency heating equipment is an investment that will pay you back for years to come. They operate more effectively and can save you money on repairs and service calls.
