It’s no secret that the winters in Utah can be bitter cold. Unfortunately, with these freezing temperatures also come the high costs of heating bills. At Western Heating & Air, we want you to call us for heating maintenance and follow a few simple tips that may help you cut down your heating bills substantially.
Cut Down on Your Heating Costs
Did you know that for every one degree you turn your thermostat down, you can save about one to three percent on your annual heating costs? If you turn up the thermostat before you get into bed at night, consider not turning it up as high and adding a few extra blankets to your bed to snuggle under. This is one of the easiest heating maintenance tips to follow.
While turning on your ceiling fan when temperatures are well-below freezing may seem crazy, doing this can also save you on your heating bills. Turn your ceiling fan on low and make sure it’s turning clockwise. When the fan is on, the warm air trapped near your ceiling will mix with the cold air in the room and keep the room warm. Homeowners that do this could potentially see a 15 percent reduction in heating costs for the entire home.
