Cut Your Heat Bill

Introduction:There is never enough money to go around with all the bills so we always try to cut corners. One way to save money is to reduce your heating bill.

  • 01

    Insulation

    This is one of the best ways to cut down on heating and prevent other problems like your pipes freezing and busting. You can do this yourself or hire a professional. There are different ways to insulate but the two main are blown insulation and the kind you lay. I don't know a lot about it, so unless you know what you are doing I would suggest hiring a pro. It might cost up front but it will save in the long run.

  • 02

    Drafts

    Most of our heat is lost threw drafty windows and doors. It is a simple fix and almost anyone can do it. Once you find the draft by just walking by your windows and doors and feeling for cold are you have a couple options. You could put up plastic, weather stripping, or if you really want you can have those window or doors replaced.







  • 03

    Air Filter

    Most wouldn't think that checking your air filter would help cut cost but it does. If you have a dirty air filter your heating system has to work harder to push the hot air threw. Also if it's dirty then that dirt can get pushed into your air and then you get sick which in turn you usually turn the heat up.

  • 04

    Dress Warmer

    If you are running around the house in a tee shirt and shorts and there is snow on the ground then your heat is probably up pretty high. Put some warmer close on.

  • 05

    Turn the Thermostat Down

    By turning down your thermostat down by one degree you can save as much as ten percent on your electric bill. I turn mine down by during the day because I can put more cloths on or get up and move around if I'm cold, and turn it up at night. That also helps my bill as well.
