In winter the ways to lower heating bills become a particularly hot topic (no pun intended). Lately because of the inflation, the prices on the fuel are skyrocketing as well, causing even bigger increase in the costs of the bills. Adult life really has no mercy on us all.
However, we are here not to remind you of the difficulties of existence, rather to help you find the way to solve these issues.
Tips How to Lower Heating Bills in Winter:
- Turn off the thermostat while you are away from home. When you get out of the house you can lower the temperature to 55°F. But don't overdo: in extremely cold environment if you go below 55°F, the pipes might freeze;
- Check your windows for the leaks. Depending on the size and planning of the house, around 15%–20% of your bill might blow out of the windows. You can check it either yourself or with the help of an assistant;
- Turn to citizens’ utility boards for help. Try to search for Citizens Utility Board in your state and see if you can apply for assistance;
- Keep outdoor chimneys and fireplaces clean and free of leaves, debris, and flammable and toxic creosote buildup.
