The Best Ways To Boost Your Home’s Winter Energy-Efficiency

December 8, 2023 | Blog

Improve Your Energy Efficiency With Beaumont Heating Services

Long winter months typically come with increased energy bills. With the back-and-forth weather that Texas brings during winter months, it’s a good idea to give energy efficiency some thought.

From additional insulation to LED lighting, there are tips and tricks that you can use to help reduce your utility bills in the winter and throughout the year. Let our team at Efficient Systems show you the way to boost your home’s energy efficiency in the winter!

Schedule A Heater Tune-Up

Heating maintenance helps your heater run better and more efficiently through the colder months of the year, saving you money on your utility bills. This is because tune-ups will make sure your heater doesn’t have any problems that will impact its heat production.

When winter arrives, you don’t want to be stuck in a cold home because your heater is down. Make sure your heater is in good shape by scheduling a furnace tune-up, Beaumont homeowners can trust! Our team at Efficient Systems will be happy to provide the service you need..

Use Your Fireplace

When was the last time you used your home’s fireplace? If you have an older home, with all the technology and heating systems we have today, it can be easy to forget that you own one.

Put your fireplace to good use this winter to save on your heating bills. Just be sure to have a routine chimney inspection before use for the safety of everyone in your home.

Add Attic Insulation

You might not be aware, but without proper insulation, your furnace will send heat through your roof. It’s important to have sufficient attic insulation to improve your energy efficiency by preventing heat from escaping your home.

Your attic is the easiest place to add more insulation. It also has the most efficient use of insulation because hot air rises. However, small air leaks throughout your home can also significantly increase your energy costs.

An investment in insulation can dramatically reduce your heat bill, though the exact amount varies depending on your local climate as well as the R-value and thickness of insulation.

Open Your Curtains

You might have heard that closing your curtains in the summer helps keep your home cooler, but it’s the opposite in the winter! Opening your drapes in the winter months can help heat up your home a little from the sun’s natural rays.

In case you want to take it up a notch, you can also replace your old windows with storm windows or insulated windows which will help prevent warm air from escaping your home.

Switch To LED Lighting

During winter months, it’s darker for longer, which means you’ll be using your lights more frequently at home!

In the past, LED light bulbs were a considerable investment. Now LED lights are surprisingly affordable and offer dramatic reductions in your energy bill. Switch to LED bulbs and you could cut up to one-third of the price off your electricity bill.

Don’t forget lamps, outdoor lighting and other lightbulbs in your home. These smaller light sources may be costing you more than your main lighting.

Use Ceiling Fans To Reduce HVAC Costs

Some HVAC systems don’t properly circulate air throughout a home. When this happens, you may have significant warm spots and cool spots. Use ceiling fans to circulate air throughout your home.

Ceiling fans have an option for which direction they turn in. During winter, it’s best to make sure your fans turn clockwise, allowing them to spread warm air throughout your space. This will help make the most of your heating system’s efforts.
