Want to reduce your heating bill and save some energy too? Try to implement these practices in your home.
Minimize your use of ventilation fans such as bathroom fans and kitchen hood fans in winter. A bathroom fan can suck all the heated air out of the average house in little more than an hour.
Keep your furnace, heat pump, or other heating equipment in top operating condition. Dirty filters reduce the efficiency of your furnace or heat pump.
Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible.
Don’t heat areas of your house you don’t use regularly, such as guest rooms. Turn down the heat and use space heaters to heat the room you spend time in.
