The 5 Top Home Heating Hacks

Posted on: January 22, 2018

The weather can be quite unpredictable this time of year, but when those cold nights hit, you’ll want to be warm and cozy quick. So if you’re looking for the most efficient way to heat your home, here are five things to consider:

1. Reverse Your Fans

One of the first things you should address while the weather is chilly is the direction of your fans! Utilizing ceiling fans can help bring the warm air down where it belongs while improving circulation.  You can do this by switching your blades from counterclockwise, to clockwise.

2. Check Your Windows and Doors

A drafty home is never a warm one, so this is why checking your windows and doors are crucial. By ridding your home of any cracks or draft, you can ensure the heat stays in where it belongs; leaving you with an even and warm temperature.

3. Think Thermostat

A good thermostat can make a difference in your home’s temp. A programmable thermostat gives you the option to adjust your home’s temperature automatically and set pre-sets based on time of day, and set it once and you’re good to go!

4. Get Fancy

Why not change up your decor a bit? One easy and affordable way to keep your home warm is through thicker curtains. Doubling up can keep in the warmth, especially at night. Open them up during the day to let the extra sunshine warm you up.

5. Change Your Filters

A dirty heating filter can hurt your energy efficient and affect the quality of your air. Not only will clean filters improve your air quality and energy bill, but you’ll also notice more natural temperature control as your system won’t have to work so hard to fight past the dust. Your filters should be regularly cleaned and changed and a yearly tuneup is always best.
