Even though we live in Texas, it still gets cold and we still have to run our heaters. With the colder temperatures most of us are concerned about how we can save money with increasing heating costs. .

Here are a few simple steps you can take in order to make your heating systems run more efficiently, help your home retain the heat, and ultimately save on utilities.

1. Set Your Thermostat Lower

This is maybe the easiest way to reduce your heating costs. Turning the thermostat down just be one degree can make a big difference in your monthly bill. Homeowners can save up to 10 percent on annual heating costs by simply turning down the temperature 7-10 degrees for 8 hours a day.

2. Let the Sun Shine In!

Take advantage of the sunny days and let the radiant heat help heat your home. Open the curtains and blinds to let the sun shine in. This is free heat to keep help keep you warm.

3. Bundle Up In An Electric Blanket

Since you took the first step in lowering your thermostat, now you can bundle up in an electric blanket to keep you warm and toasty. Also place an electric blanket on your bed and let it warm up your bed prior to bedtime. Once you climb in to your warm bed you can turn it off and sleep comfortably.

4. Proper Maintenance on Your Heating System

Doing this simple step every fall can help to make certain your heating system is operating at optimum efficiency. Also, having a HVAC professional look at the system is the best way to catch potential issues before small things become major repairs or worse leaving you without heat during a cold winter night.

5. Replace Your Furnace with a Higher Efficiency Furnace

The typical life expectancy for your HVAC system is 10-15 years. If your system is older and you notice an increase in energy costs, upgrading to a new high efficiency heating and air conditioning system could make a huge difference in your comfort as well as your heating and air costs. Air Comfort Solutions offers our clients free estimates on equipment replacement to discuss options that best fit your budget.

6. Add Additional Attic Insulation

As your home ages, your attic insulation can break down and lose volume. This reduced volume can lead to a tremendous energy loss. The minimal investment of increasing your attic insulation can often substantially reduce your energy costs..
