10 Ways to Be Eco-Friendly and Lower Winter Heating CostsIt may seem that way sometimes, but cooling and heating costs are not beyond your control. One way to ensure maximum energy efficiency is with a seasonal heating & AC inspection of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in your home or properties. Spring’s checkup will focus on your air conditioning unit and vents; fall’s will ensure your heating system is ready for anything!

Earth-Friendly, Sustainable Living Begins with You

Earth-Friendly, Sustainable Living Begins with You

Living Green Magazine says there are easy DIY (do-it-yourself) ways to winterize your home that can demonstrate your commitment to the environment while reducing energy costs. “Winter is the time to enjoy holidays . . . and not have to worry about excessive heating bills.”

Not only does energy-efficiency benefit the ecology, but it also results in savings for us. Our cooling and heating costs can be lowered in several ways, and you don’t need to invest in a brand-new HVAC system this year. Here are some ways to lower winter heating costs without jeopardizing our environment:

  • Block door drafts.
  • Close off rooms that don’t need heat.
  • Examine window seals; they should not show evidence of condensation or air leaks.
  • Install a programmable thermostat; set it to lower heat while you’re at work/school, then begin warming before your return.
  • Inspect your insulation; it can reduce heating costs as much as 20%, according to Energy Star.
  • Let the sun shine in!
  • Turn your water heater temperature down.
  • Upgrade older-than-10-years furnaces and hot water heaters.
  • Warm the floors with area rugs.
  • Wear layered clothing indoors.
