As we move into Spring, you may begin to wonder how you can keep your heating bill as low as possible as you are making to seasonal transition. Here are some factors that can cause your bill to go up and some helpful tips on how to keep it low.
Poor insulation could be contributing to why your heating bill is so high. If you have poor insulation then there is a possibility that the warm air could be escaping the home.
Another large hit to your wallet could be the fact that your furnace isn’t functioning as it should. If the heating system is outdated or hasn’t been serviced in a while, it could be struggling to hit optimal performance.
Obviously, as it gets colder outside, we want it to be warmer inside our homes and vice versa. This causes people to set their thermostats higher than normal to really crank up the heat. So, just because your heating bill is high now, it may never be like that consistently.
Whether it’s doing extra laundry or using your oven more, utilizing your appliances more may increase your heating bill. By constantly running the dryer or other appliances will also increase your energy or heating bill.
