Do you know the best practices when it comes to setting the thermostat in your home?
A big reason for energy inefficiency in your home is setting your thermostat to fluctuating temperatures. The best practice for efficiency is to find a setting where you are comfortable, set your thermostat and don’t touch it again. Constantly changing the temperature causes your heater to work overtime to catch up to its new setting.
Another way to help support your heater is to switch your ceiling fans to reverse. By changing the direction of the blades, warm air that pools near the ceiling is circulated back into the room. This trick could cut your heating costs up to 10 percent. Don’t forget to switch it again when the weather warms back up!
We hope these tips will be helpful for you this winter.
