The winters in [region] are cold, long and expensive. You want to enjoy a comfortable home without draining the budget.

If you’re looking to lower your heating bills, we at Jacobazzi Heating & Cooling suggest:

  • Identifying and preventing heat loss
  • Developing energy-saving habits
  • Focusing on the performance of the heating system

If your home isn’t air-tight, up to 25% of heated air can leak out through small cracks and crevices. Cold outdoor air can also find a way in, creating cold spots and drafts. The areas of the house most likely to allow heat loss include:

  • Doors
  • Fireplaces
  • Power outlets
  • Roof
  • Walls
  • Windows

A professional energy audit works to pinpoint areas of heat loss. Strategies such as duct sealing, replacing windows, insulating, caulking and weatherstripping provide cost-effective improvement.

Reduce monthly heating expenses with simple changes to your routine, such as:

  • Dress a little warmer and lower the thermostat a couple of degrees
  • Open up the curtains during the day and allow the sunshine to warm up the room
  • Close curtains at night to insulate against the cold glass of the windows
  • Adjust the thermostat before heading to bed or leaving the house to conserve energy
  • Shut the doors of unused rooms and close the vents
  • Enjoy some home cooking or baking and add some heat from the oven
  • Run the ceiling fan clockwise to better distribute warm air
  • Arrange the furniture to maximize airflow from heating vents

The performance of the heating system needs to be a priority. To optimize efficiency and combat longer run times, restricted air flow and malfunction, be conscientious about filter changes and annual maintenance. Jacobazzi Heating & Cooling is happy to help.
