So regardless of whether or not you are one of our loyal customers we would like to share some energy saving tips with you to help take the sting out of heating your home this winter.

One common mistake that homeowners make is shutting their ceiling fans off during the heating months. It may seem counterintuitive, but those fans are just as helpful in the winter as the summer. Just flip the switch on the fixture itself to reverse the direction in which the blades spin. This will allow the fans to push heated air back down to living space in your home. Doing so makes for more even, efficient heating.

You can also purchase weather stripping and shrink wrap very cheaply at a hardware store. Keeping the heat that you pay for inside your home is one of the most basic ways in which you can boost energy efficiency. It is a quick, easy and affordable way to reduce energy costs this winter.

Finally, think about upgrading your thermostat. Programmable models, when properly used, give you more control than ever about how you use energy when heating your home. Be sure to familiarize yourself with your new thermostat in order to get the most out of your new heating control system.
