One of the most basic ways you can maintain your heating efficiency is to keep the heat in your home where it belongs. Here are a few simple, inexpensive ways that you can do this. Go to your local hardware store and pick up some weather stripping for your doors so you can keep the heat from escaping, and some shrink wrap to seal up your windows if you haven’t upgraded those old leaking single or double Payne windows. You can also put a thin bead of caulk around the cracks of the frame inside and outside of your windows to further boost efficiency.
Using a programmable thermostat properly is another simple way to maintain heating efficiency. Take time to familiarize yourself with your programmable thermostat. Know its features and make use of its programmable options. When you’re not home all day you can lower your temperature 3-4 Deg. We don’t recommend anymore than that, have your thermostat set to come back up to the desired temperature you like one hour before you come home, do the same thing before you go to bed let your thermostat go down 3-4 Deg. and back to your desired temperature one hour before you get up that way your home is comfortable before you get out of bed, the more you understand your thermostat the more efficient your home will be and put some money back into your pocket.
The most important step you can take is to maintain your heating system, schedule regular maintenance service.
