1) Smart Thermostat

As a result, you have have much more control over the temperature in your home especially when cold snaps become unpredictable during the transition months between fall/winter and winter/spring.
2) Programmable Thermostat
Programmable thermostats are also a great investment to save you money during winter months. You can set the times of day when you need more or less heat to keep your home a comfortable temperature.
Regular Furnace Maintenence
Contact your local HVAC professionals and schedule a check-up on your furnace system. A furnace that runs effeciently is a furnace that will save you money in the long run.
Clear Air Vents
The third way to lower your heating bills is to make sure there is nothing blocking your vents or radiators. It is difficult at times to position furniture away from your vents. This is especially true if your home has limited space. It is very impotant to maintain good air circulation so the warm air spreads evenly throughout your home. Also, when vents are blocked, it causes your furnace to have to work harder and there goes your energy savings.
We hope these three ways to lower your heating bill have helped in your search to save money this winter and many winters to come.
