We are almost past fall, with winter quickly approaching. The weather while inconsistent in Texas, will reach freezing temperatures during this winter season. Home and business owners will be relying on their heating systems this season to control the climate of their space and keep it welcoming year round. Using your space’s heating system can mean an increase in your energy costs, that may come as a shock. This is why the team at Autumn Air has comprised this list of tips to help you reduce your heating costs this cold season:
Seal Your Chimney Flue: Do you love the luxury of having a fireplace in your home? Many homeowners find having a fire going in their home during the winter to be one of the most seasonal and enjoyable ways to bring heat to their space. However, if you are not taking the time to ensure your chimney flue is properly sealed when it is not in use, you are letting heat escape your home. Leaving your chimney flue unsealed will have about the same impact you could expect from leaving a window in your home open on a winter day. Additionally, ensure you are not letting heat escape from your dryer vents by keeping those closed as well.
Keep Fans Going: Have you ever heard the term, “heat rises?” This is because the natural flow of air pushes warm air to the top of a space. Keeping your ceiling fans on low will help to distribute the warm air throughout your space, instead of letting it all collect at the top. This is an especially useful tip for spaces with high ceilings. Keep your house feeling warmer with this trick, to make the best use of the warm air your heating system provides.
Schedule A Heating Tune-Up: Often times, home and business owners wait until there is a problem with their space’s heating or cooling system to give HVAC professionals a call. By scheduling regular routine maintenance on your space’s HVAC system, you give the dedicated team of AC and heating technicians at Autumn Air the chance to catch your problems quickly. Your HVAC system relies on multiple different parts to work properly and efficiently.
