Electronic devices like phone chargers, gaming systems, table lamps etc. will eat up a ton of energy when you aren’t using them! Unplug devices you aren’t using to save on energy costs.
- Cover Drafty Windows.
Check your windows for drafts. You can cover them with insulating curtains or shades. You might also have to invest in new windows if a lot of heat is escaping and cold air being pushed in.
Keep your fireplace clean and check for places where air may be escaping. You may need to seal your chimney. If you have a wood burning fireplace, it’s a good idea to consider switching to gas
- Air registers
Don’t block air registers with things like furniture or else heat won’t be able to circulate throughout the room which will make your system run longer. Also be sure that air vents are clean and free of dust.
Keeping your homes humidity up in the winter will keep warm air trapped in the area longer!
