If you have questions about air conditioner repair, replacement, indoor filtration systems, furnace repair, furnace replacement or water heater repair and replacement, you’ve come to the right place.
At Comfort Pros, we have years of experience in helping Lakewood, Colorado homeowners with all of their heating and cooling needs. In addition to providing a full range of services for HVAC systems, we can also help advise you on the benefits of installing an indoor air purification system.
For this blog, however, we wanted to offer you several key tips and tricks to help trim your heating bill (while allowing you to keep warm at the same time.)
Turn it down
The most obvious tip for saving money on your hearing bill involves turning down your thermostat.
The US Department of Energy estimates that homeowners in Lakewood, CO can save about 10 percent each year if they lower their thermostat setting between 10 and 15 degrees during the day (most people find that lowering the temperature while they are at work, works out just fine.)
If you have questions about how to program your current thermostat or you’re interested in learning more about how smart thermostats work, call our office today at 303-945-4319 to learn how Comfort Pros can help.
Winters in Colorado are cold, and no one in your family should have an expectation that they should be able to walk around in tank tops and shorts during the winter.
Not only is that a silly idea, it’s also an expensive one! Winter is a great time to make use of oversized sweaters, sweatpants and warm, cozy blankets.
Summer clothes are best left for, well, summer.
Flip the switch on your ceiling fan
Did you know that most ceiling fans come with a directional switch? (It’s typically located on the round, motor component that’s just beneath the blades.) If you set your fan to turn clockwise (as opposed to counter-clockwise) on a low-speed setting, this will help create an updraft. An updraft can help recirculate the warmer air, which tends to hang out near the ceiling.
Open the curtains
If the sun is shining, open your blinds and curtains! The sun provides free heat all throughout the year (even when its cold outside), so be sure to let those natural rays into your home.
