Ways to Cut Down Your Home Heating Costs


Our tips can show you ways to cut down your home heating costs even in the middle of Winter.
We recommend planning for Winter now.

  1. Replace Worn Weatherstripping
    Worn and torn weatherstripping around doors and windows creates drafts and lets in cold air.
  2. Adjust Door Thresholds
    If you can see daylight under your front door, then you’re losing the indoor air you’ve paid to heat.
  3. Eliminate Drafts Around Electrical Boxes
    Electrical boxes in your exterior walls are notoriously drafty because insulation isn’t always placed behind and around them correctly.
  4. Plug Holes in Exterior Walls
    Pipes, gas lines, and electrical cables that enter your house often have gaps around them that have been haphazardly filled with some kind of caulk.
  5. Buy a Portable Heater (and Turn Down the Furnace)
    Put a space heater in the place where your family gathers, like the living room, and turn down the furnace temperature.
  6. Cover Windows and Patio Doors with Plastic Film
  7. Keep Warm Air from Escaping Up the Chimney
    The downside to fireplaces is that when they’re not in use, your warm indoor air is escaping through chimney.
  8. Insulate the Attic Access Door
    Even in well-insulated attics, the access door may not be properly insulated, letting warm air escape through the attic hatch.
  9. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    Save money, tell the thermostat to keep the temperature low during the day when no one is home and at night when everyone is sleeping.
