When it comes to staying warm this holiday season, there are many ways to achieve warmth without using your heater. We have previously mentioned many ideas to keeping warm without using your furnace but there are many more ways that you can try that will save you money on your heating costs this season. Below we list additional tips that will keep you and your wallet warm and cozy.
- To state the obvious for keeping warm, we suggest investing in warm and comfortable winter clothes to relax in while you are home. Dressing in layers and wearing slippers is a great and affordable way to stay warm inside.
- While cooking this winter, utilize the heat that is given off from the stove and oven. Homeowners should refrain from using the kitchen fans because they diminish the hot air that was created from baking.
- Since hot air rises, reversing your ceiling fans will help bring that warm air down for you and your family to enjoy.
- For homeowners who want to utilize their furnace and heater, we recommend frequently changing your dirty and clogged filters to allow your system to not overwork. When your HVAC system is overworked it can make your electric bill increase tremendously.
