Other tips to save you money during the heating season in South Carolina
Like it or not, fall is nearly upon us—and with it, of course, comes the home heating season. Now is a great time to get a jump on tasks that will bring some savings in the months ahead. Here are six suggestions:
Winterize windows with weather-stripping (for movable joints) and caulk (for nonmoving parts). Also, use a window kit to insulate the inside of your windows to keep cold air out and warm air in.
Check the air filter in your oil furnace about once a month and clean or change it when necessary.
Keep vents (or baseboards) clear of rugs and furniture so you don’t block your heat.
Use ventilating fans in your kitchen, bath and other rooms wisely; in just one hour, these fans can pull out a houseful of warmed air. Turn fans off as soon as they have done the job.
Run your ceiling fans in reverse. Warm air rises, so reversing your ceiling fans will push the warm air down. This will keep your rooms more comfortable and will reduce your energy usage a bit, too.
Install a smart programmable thermostat. Programmable thermostats allow you to set your temperatures so that you aren’t wasting energy when you aren’t home or when you’re asleep. Today’s smart thermostats can be controlled remotely, giving you greater control over your energy usage. This relatively inexpensive investment can potentially cut your energy usage by at least 5%—sometimes by even more!
