1. Switch your ceiling fan’s blade rotation
Chances are you’ve never thought about what direction your fan is spinning, but the blades’ rotation can actually help you save on your winter heating bill! Hot air rises, so reverse your fan’s blades to a clockwise rotation to help push that warmth right back down to you.
Tip #2: Let The Sunshine In!
Take advantage of the world’s best furnace – our sun! Naturally heat your home by drawing the curtains of where the sun shines in your house during the day; you’ll save money on your heating bill and benefit from the beautiful wintery backdrop depending on where you live which could be snow or palm trees!
Tip #3: Avoid Using Your Exhaust Fans
Your bathroom fans and oven hoods are often-overlooked sources of heat loss in the winter. Use your exhaust fans sparingly, and turn them off when not in use to ensure your home’s warmth isn’t being pulled away.
Tip #4: Swap Out Old Bulbs With LEDs
If you haven’t switched out your homes lightbulbs for LEDs, winter is the perfect time to do so. LED bulbs use 75% less energy than traditional incandescent light bulbs, which can lead to huge savings on your energy bill during the winter months. On top of that you can also opt for LED holiday lights as well.
Tip #5: Invest in a Smarter Thermostat
When you are already spending extra money during the holiday season, why not pick up savings with a programmable thermostat? This easy home upgrade can save up to 12% on your energy bill and will continue to reduce AC costs in the upcoming spring and summer. How cool is that?
