How to Lower Your Heating Bills in Las Vegas this Winter

While winter seems like it’s already been going on for way too long, its influence on our heating bill is just starting. Keeping energy costs low during the coldest months of the year can be tough, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take steps to possibly reduce those costs. That’s why we’ve developed a few furnace tips to help stave off high heating bills.


 
To take aim at lowering your heating bills and enhancing your energy efficiency this winter, consider:
  • Keeping your blinds open throughout the warmest hours of the day to let sunlight in, heating your home naturally.
  • Sealing cracks around your home’s windows and doors with caulk or weather stripping.
  • Adding a programmable thermostat so that you can better control the temperature in your home, which will also increase energy efficiency.
  • Cleaning or replacing your furnace filter regularly.
  • Making sure your home’s heating vents are open and aren’t blocked by any obstructions
  • Replacing your old furnace with a newer, more efficient model if you’ve had your current furnace for more than 15 years.
  • Adding insulation to your attic to keep warm air from escaping.
  • Checking your roof to make sure your shingles are intact, and that no holes or areas need sealing.

Trying to keep your energy bills low and energy efficiency high, is a year-round practice, one that can seem overwhelming at times. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t take a few small steps to make sure you’re keeping your bills as low as possible.
