With winter approaching, you may be worrying about a high electric bill. Consider cutting the cost of your utility bill in half by using these energy-efficient heating tips from your plumber in Houston!
Install a thermostat timer -
Programmable thermostat timers automatically raise and lower the temperature throughout the day depending on when you are home. Investing in one of these can save about $180 on your utility bills per year!
Make sure the air filter is clean - Air filters can easily fill with dust and debris, especially during allergy seasons in the summer and winter. A dirty filter slows airflow causing your system to work harder to pump out the air. We recommend changing your filter every three months to keep your system operating at the maximum efficiency!
Adjust temperature based on who’s coming - People naturally generate heat and a large number of people in your home can drastically warm the room temperature! So to keep your system from over-working and turn the heat down if you’re expecting company. Also, lower the temperature if you don’t expect to be home for an extended period.
