This is the #1 way to ensure a heater that doesn’t waste power over the winter. When a heating system is allowed to go without an annual fall tune-up, it will lose on average 5% of its efficiency each year.
Regularly change the furnace filter
The filter on a furnace accumulates large amounts of dust, dirt, dander, and other debris as it runs over the winter.
Get in the habit of putting in a new filter each month.
Maintain a steady, lower thermostat setting
It’s wasteful to turn the thermostat up to as high as it can go, and it won’t make your home more comfortable either.
Keep the thermostat steady at this temperature during the day, lowering it further at night, and you may be able to reduce your heating bills by 25%.
Balance humidity with a humidifier
If your home often suffers from dry air in the winter, it means running the heating system more often.
Awhole-house humidifier can do wonders at making your house feel warmer, allowing you to cut down on how often the heater has to be on.
