So the time of year has come when we will begin to have our furnace running more often. And the longer the furnace is running, the higher your energy bill will likely increase. But you’re in luck! The experts Arnold Service Company is here with some tips and tricks to help you save on your heating bill this winter.
- Insulate the access door of your attic: Normally, you have insulation in the attic of your home. But it is less frequent that there is adequate insulation on the access door and this is where the heat from your home can escape. So make sure that insulation is placed on the hatch too. Also to help block heat from leaking through the door, which could possibly be warped, we recommend using an adhesive to attach fiberglass batt insulation on the sides.
- Put plastic on windows: It’s a well-known fact that a lot of the heat in your home can be lost through your windows and patio doors.Covering them with a clear plastic film can help prevent this problem. The film is inexpensive, easy to install, and even easier to remove once the weather begins to warm up again and helps to keep the cold air out and the warm air in.
- Seal your air ducts: According to Energy Star, as much as 30 percent of heat can be lost through cracks and leaks in the ductwork of your home. Be sure to have a professional come out to your home to inspect and repair your ducts.
As you can see, there are many things you can do to be proactive in saving on your heating bill this winter in Fayetteville, NC. To learn more dial (910) 425-3350 to reach the professionals at Arnold Service Company today!
