How to Heat Your Home Efficiently This Fall

With Autumn in full swing, the cooler days are upon us. With that being said, your heating unit is likely coming out of retirement to keep you cozy this Fall. Unfortunately, with more heating comes increased energy bills. Here are some tips on how to heat your home efficiently so that you don’t rack up high electricity costs.

Reset your water heater: Expert technicians warn against setting water heater temperatures too high. Ideally, you want your thermostat to read between 110 and 120 degrees. Otherwise, you’re liable to scorch yourself every time you turn the water on.

Don’t obstruct your vents: When you block your vents, it prevents hot air from being released. For optimal airflow, remove any items that are in the way. If your HVAC system has to work unreasonably hard to emit air, you’ll see an increase in your energy bill.

Seal up outflows: If there are any gaps or outflows around your home, seal them up immediately. These openings don’t bode well for a smooth-running HVAC unit. If you don’t have the necessary supplies to mend these repairs, reach out to expert technicians.

Insulate your home: Adding insulation to your home decreases the chances of heat escaping. If you live in a particularly frigid climate, this is a surefire way to combat inclement conditions. There are numerous services you can seek that guarantee proper installation.

Consult a professional: The savviest course of action is to speak with an industry expert. To ensure your home is heated efficiently this Fall, you can call the expert technicians at Affordable Service. In addition to affordability, we promise quality service!
