Here are some easy tips to help reduce your home energy costs.

Furnace related tips:

  • Keep your furnace running smoothly in top shape. Regular maintenance will mean your furnace stays clean, lubricated, and in good working order. This will save you money and eliminate potential health problems.

  • Make sure that your ducts are clean. Regular service of your air ducts will ensure that your heating system is operating efficiently and safely.
  • Ensure that return air grills and heating vents are clear of obstructions such as furniture, rugs and drapes. This will limit interference with the flow of heat through your home.

With just these furnace and duct related tips, you can reduce your energy bills significantly. Remember, reducing your energy demand not only saves you money, it helps save the environment too!
