How to Save Money on Your Heating Bills This Winter


Conserving energy is good not only for your wallet but for the planet as well. Also, there are likely many other things you’d rather spend your money on than seeing it go toward inflated heating costs.

Save money on energy bills this winter with these tips from a furnace and air conditioner repair expert.

Switch to a Tankless Water Heater 

By installing a tankless water heater, you’ll be saving energy. Unlike a tank heater that’s constantly heating a full tank of stored water. tankless water heaters only heat water when the unit is turned on. An ENERGY STAR®-certified tankless heater can save you around $100 every year. Moreover, it can last for up to 20 years, making your investment well worth it.

Replace Furnace Filters

It’s essential to change out your furnace filters every three months. Using old, dirty filters can make your heating system less efficient, and may even cause damage to the unit. Keep in mind that replacing your furnace is much costlier than simply keeping up with its maintenance.

Install Ceiling Fans

Poor air circulation can make your indoor spaces stuffy. Ceiling fans allow for proper air circulation, which can help you save a significant amount of money all-year-round. In the winter, locate and flip the reverse switch on your fan, which is usually located near the top of the unit. It will make the fan’s blades spin in the opposite direction, pushing warm air that’s trapped near the ceiling back down into your living space.
