3 Ways to Lower Your Heating Bill This Winter

While it’s true that subzero temperatures are a rarity in Deming, New Mexico, temperatures do drop significantly during the winter months. To save as much money as possible, why not put these practical, energy-saving tips into action? When you follow this advice, you’ll spend less money on heating your home during the winter months.

Get Your HVAC System Checked

To function efficiently, HVAC systems need regular maintenance. When you arrange for HVAC maintenance annually, when the weather starts to grow colder, a technician will be able to inspect your system and recommend any necessary repairs. After problems are fixed, you’ll save energy. A well-maintained HVAC system will also enhance home comfort and extend the product life of your HVAC unit.

Seal Leaks to Stop Drafts

Your home may be leaking hot air, but you’ll be able to seal many of these leaks on your own. Leaks are common around attics, windows, doors, and electrical outlets. Definitely check for cracks in any caulk around windows, but you can also hold up a piece of paper where you think a leak might be. If the paper moves, you probably have an air leak. Seal gaps with weatherstripping or caulking to keep hot air inside, where it belongs.

Change HVAC Air Filters Monthly

If you want your home’s HVAC system to function with uninterrupted and smooth airflow, be sure to replace the system’s air filters monthly. When you change air filters once per month, or as often as directed by the air filter manufacturer, you’ll extend the life of your furnace, lower energy bills, and enhance indoor air quality. HVAC systems run more efficiently when you change the air filter regularly.
