How Can I Lower my Energy Costs in the Winter?

Winter is coming and so are increased energy bills! This year the price of these bills is expected to surge due to supply chain demands and COVID-19. Wondering what you can do to cut down on energy costs? Follow our tips for ways to lower your energy costs this winter and download our free checklist!

Keep Warmth in and Cold out

During the day while you’re at work, lower your thermostat and open your
cu
rtains. This will allow the natural light to flood in and naturally warm your space.

Once you are home, close your curtains to keep the cold out and the warmth in.

Opening the vents in all of your rooms is another way to improve the energy efficiency of your heating system. People often think that closing vents in unused rooms will preserve costs, but closing vents in unused rooms will actually make your heating system run harder as it works to make up for imbalances. Allowing things to run the way they were meant to can actually help. With natural gas prices on the rise, this is a tip you’ll want to try if your home’s heating system runs on gas.

Double-check that there are no drafts coming from windows and doors. If there are you will want to check the weatherstripping and caulking to see if it needs repair. Replacing or repairing these parts yourself is fairly easy and cost-effective.

Use Less Electricity

Many homeowners will put up holiday lights in November and December. While these lights can have low wattage, leaving them on all night can lead to excessive use of energy. Set your indoor and outdoor lights on a timer so they can turn on when the sun sets but off when you’re going to bed.

Switching to LED lightbulbs in your lamps and ceiling lights can also cut down a significant amount of energy usage than a regular incandescent lightbulb. Remember to turn off overhead lights and table lamps when not in use or when leaving the room.

Reduce Water Usage

Take shorter showers in order to save on the amount of water you use, as well as your water heater usage. If it’s time to replace your water heater, tankless water heaters are a great option for smaller families. You can also wash your clothes in cold water to reduce water heater usage. Keeping your lint collector clear will also allow your dryer to run more efficiently.
