How to Heat Your Home This Winter
Posted on February 20th, 2017
You might not need to turn on your heat today, but winter nights can get cool here in the Phoenix area. Fortunately, there are ways to stay warm at night without breaking the bank (no one wants a high heating bill at the end of the month)! Here are a few tips that will help you keep your home warm and cozy this winter.
How to Heat Your Home Better:
Caulk Your Windows – Do you have drafty windows in your home? Add some caulk around your windows to keep them sealed! You don’t want to lose heated air through cracks and gaps in your windows.
Change Your Air Filters – Dirty, clogged air filters keep your HVAC system from working as efficiently as it should. Check your air filters once a month to ensure that they are clean and that air can pass through properly.
Add Insulation – Are the walls of your home well-insulated? How about your attic? These are significant sources of heat loss (or gain) in your home. If you know that certain rooms in your home are cooler than others, you may need to add insulation.
Install a Programmable or Smart Thermostat – One of the best ways to ensure that your home is a comfortable temperature at an affordable price is by installing a programmable or smart thermostat in your home. These thermostats will keep your home warm at night when you need it, and cool during the day when the temperature rises. Smart thermostats go a step further — learning your habits throughout the day and automatically adjusting the temperature of your home based on your unique needs.
