Many Florida homeowners dread the winter time. Not only do we have to trade in our sandals for real shoes and take a break from our beloved beaches, but there also tends to be a noticeable increase on our energy bills from heating our homes. Fortunately, there are easy ways you can cut your energy costs this winter. These four tips will help you get started:
1. Use your ceiling fan.
If you have a ceiling fan, you can use it to keep your home warm during the winter. When the ceiling fan blades are turned clockwise, they push the warm air down. The blades also distribute warm air throughout your room.
2. Apply film on your windows.
Applying a high-quality film to your windows will prevent warm air from escaping your home. In fact, studies show that window film can cut heating costs by up to 40 percent!
3. Install a programmable thermostat.
A programmable thermostat can help you save throughout the year, especially if you spend a lot of time away from your home. You can set your programmable thermostat to automatically adjust to more energy-efficient temperature when you’re not at home. Similarly, you can also set your device to automatically adjust back to a more comfortable temperature a few minutes before everyone gets home.
4. Call Weather Engineers for HVAC maintenance.
HVAC maintenance boasts numerous benefits beyond lowering your energy bills. For good measure, have your HVAC system maintenanced by a professional at least once a year.
