Easy Ways to Save Energy This Fall
September 17, 2018
The leaves are changing and temperatures are dropping: autumn in Pennsylvania has nearly arrived. The transition to heating season is in full swing, and we are here to help you save on your energy bills. Read on to learn some helpful tips that could help you keep more money in your wallet without compromising your home comfort!
Always Cover Windows at Night
It’s no secret that windows are the prime culprits for drafty spots. Open your curtains during the day to absorb that free solar heat, then shut them tightly at night to prevent warm air from escaping to the outside. You’ll notice a difference right away!
Watch Your Water Heater
Many families keep their hot water heaters too warm, which adds up quickly on energy bills. Ferro Fuels suggests turning your hot water heater down to 120°F, and being careful not to use hot water for unnecessary things, like laundry. By washing all loads of laundry in cold water, your clothes will come out just as clean, but you can store your heated water until you want to take a toasty shower.
Schedule Your Tune-Up
Many of us haven’t turned on our heating systems since March. Having your heating equipment tuned up in the fall is the perfect way to get it ready for its heavy-lifting time of year. Scheduling maintenance has other benefits, too: You can reduce the risk of costly breakdowns and save money on emergency service calls. Another great way to save with tune-ups is to enroll in a service plan, all of which include one free tune-up a year!
