How to Save Money this Winter

Heating your home can be expensive. But there’s no need to spend an arm and a leg trying to keep yourself warm over the winter.
1. Use the sun

Open the blinds on your southern facing windows during the day. This way the sun can naturally aid in keeping your house warm.

2. Use a programmable thermostat

Programmable thermostats make his easier to regulate your house’s temperature – instead of having to remember to lower your thermostat every night your thermostat will do it for you, keeping your bills lower. Did you know you can save up to 3% of your heating bill over a 24 hour period?
3. Set your fan to circulate air upwards

Surprisingly, having your fan on low can help move warm air that is trapped at the top of your room helping no one stay warm. By switching your fan to blow the opposite direction that it does during the summer, your warm air won’t go to waste.

4. Use a humidifier

Moist air retains heat better than dry air. Having a humidifier installed in your HVAC system can drastically reduce the work your furnace needs to do in order to keep your house toasty during the winter.

5. Have your furnace serviced by Zipf-Air, Inc.

Furnace or boiler maintenance is the most important step in saving money on heating during the winter. Regular maintenance keeps your system running as efficiently as possible!
