Don’t Burn out this Winter: 3 Ways to Save at Home!

It’s not cheap to heat your home!

Did you know, heating can cost up to three times as much as cooling?! With the majority of holidays (and maybe some birthdays) coming for your wallet this winter, check out these 3 ways to save at home for the things that matter!

Replace air filters in a timely manner

This is one of the easiest and most often forgotten household tasks to accomplish. Heating the home not only costs more than cooling, it often dries the environment as well, giving dust an ample chance to settle. The clarity of your air filters are the last line of defense between bad air and clean flow. Make sure you’re ready!

Try LED Holiday Lighting

LED is the future! And the present… It might be a lot for more festive households to swap all their incandescent decorations, but even incrementally it can lead to major savings and greater beauty. Typically, LED lights can last 50,000-100,000 hours (5-10 YEARS!) longer than their incandescent varieties. Shop now, and save for…. 2030!

Close the fireplace damper when not in use

The fireplace is a very efficient way to heat the home, but if used improperly can be expensive, or even dangerous. When the fireplace is not in use, keep the damper closed to prevent air from escaping. When it is being used, close the doors leading to the room and reduce the thermostat temperature.
