10 Cheap And Easy Ways To Reduce Your Heating Bills
This Winter

It’s fall in Virginia, but winter will be here before you know it. Is your heating
system ready?
Heating and cooling can be a challenge in Virginia’s autumnal months. But
once winter arrives, you may have heating bills that are more than they should
be. If your heating system hasn’t been serviced in a while, call us today at 804276-2800 for an appointment.
If your HVAC system has been serviced, heating your home may still be costly.
Start now, and you’ll be ready when first winter front arrives.


Have your heating system checked before you need it. A service check
can alert you to problems you didn’t know about, and can prevent costly
breakdowns during the winter.



Check your heating ducts for leaks, and seal them. Tiny leaks can be
expensive!



Consider changing your old thermostat to a new, programmable model
that allows you to set it and forget about it until spring.



Insulating window film can help keep out cold as well as heat in summer,
and is less expensive than replacement windows.



Change your system’s filters regularly and buy extras so you won’t run
out when you need them. Clogged filters make your unit work harder,
increasing your heating costs, so keep them clean!



Check for drafts: light a candle, and carefully move it along doors,
windows and other spots. When the candle flickers, mark each “draft”
location (sticky note, etc.) Seal the spots with caulking and/or weather
stripping to keep chilly air outside.



Check around chimneys, pipes, furnace flues, windows, doors, electrical
outlets, light switches, and anywhere else cracks may allow heat to
escape and cold air to come in. If the area is too big to caulk, spray foam
fills in those larger gaps. This video shows you how to insulate your
electrical outlets.



Even if you’ve replaced your door sweeps, you can also stop incoming air
flow with a simple to make Draft Snake. Using heavy fabric and
inexpensive dried beans, the Draft Snake is a physical barrier to chilly air
(or escaping cool air in the summer.) Use a fabric that matches the décor
in each area of your home that needs one.



Keep your chimney’s flue closed when you’re not using it. Add a visible
mark showing “open” and “closed” to ensure it’s not accidentally left
open.



Insulate your attic door. Heat rises, so unless your attic is part of your
living space, attic door insulation will keep the heated air inside your
home.



Do you have a basement? Insulate the basement’s ceiling to keep cold air
from seeping upwards. Insulate the walls to add additional living space
and keep your entire home warmer.
