How to Lower Your Emmaus Heating Bill
Keeping your heating bill low is a challenge in Pennsylvania. Before the weather gets brutal and you have to call for furnace repair in Emmaus, try these simple tasks to lower your heating bill and increase the money in your pocket this coming winter season:
1) Update the weatherstripping on your house. If it has been damaged by children or pets, or is missing in certain areas of your home, make sure that every door in your home is properly sealed from the outside air. This could save you a good chunk of money, considering up to 30% of your heating bill can come from heating drafty areas of your home.
2) If you are not using a large portion of your home, using a space heater or a heated blanket could save you loads of money. If you have a large home, odds are you are paying to heat a lot of space that you are not occupying very often. This will allow you to lower your thermostat and still be comfortable in whatever room you’re in.
3) Make sure warm air does not escape out of sneaky spots in your home. Insulate your attic access door, for example, and double check to make sure your flue is closed when your fireplace is not in use.
