How To Save On Heating Costs This Winter

Do you feel like you’re paying too much in heating costs every winter? Year after year, many homeowners feel that their heating bills are constantly rising, even when they are consistent in the amount of heat that they use. So where is the discrepancy in cost coming in? While the price of gas or oil may in fact be fluctuating on a yearly basis, it’s important to realize that small faults in your home may be the reason for the constant increase in your heating bills. See below for three quick fixes you can perform in order to save on heating costs this winter:

  1. Replace Weatherstripping: When the weatherstripping around your windows and doors is old and worn out, cold air can easily slip into your home. To reduce costs, make sure your weatherstripping is new or in good shape.
  2. Insulate: Check to make sure that your attic and attic door is insulated well. Having the proper insulation in both the room itself as well as the door can help prevent the rising heat from escaping.
  3. Programmable Thermostat: Programmable thermostats can help reduce heating costs since you can preset the temperature of your home for different times of the day. This is extremely helpful for when you know you won’t be home, since it isn’t necessary to generate as much heat when no one is around!

When it comes time to replace a home’s heating system, many homeowners struggle when deciding whether they should opt for an electric heat pump or go with a new gas furnace. While the cost of each system heavily weighs in on your decision, it’s important to understand exactly how each one works so that you can be sure you’ve chosen a system that caters to your location, situation and comfort standards – even if that means splurging now to save later.

Thanks to Angie’s List, the following are a a few facts about each system to help you decide:

Electric Heat Pumps:

  • Rely on electricity.
  • Decreased risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and fires in your home.
  • Utilize refrigeration cycles to generate heat.
  • Can be noisier than desired.

Gas Furnace Systems:

  • Rely on a flame.
  • Powered by sources such as natural or propane gas.
  • Increased risk of fires and carbon monoxide leaks.
  • Better suited in cold climates than heat pumps.

Still not sure which system works for you? Contact Airtech of Stamford today! Our technicians are available to install both electric heat pump systems and gas furnace systems, and will guide you towards making the right decision based on your location and budget.

Now that things are finally cooling off and the temperatures are starting to drop, it’s likely that you’re checking out your heating system to make sure it’s ready to keep you warm.
