Top 10 Money Savers for Fall


Fall is a great season to save money. We’ve got school bills and supplies to buy, Holiday shopping bills coming up and, of course, winter clothes. So take a moment to see how you can cut your energy bills with these helpful techniques…


1.      Set back your thermostat. This is so simple, but it works. Adjust it to the coolest level that’s comfortable. Caution: Don’t set the thermostat more than 5 degrees cooler than the ‘normal’ rating when you’re away because of the amount of energy you’ll need to heat it back up. Even better: Call us to get a programmable thermostat that’ll adjust the temperature while you’re away or sleeping.


2.      Clean warm air registers, baseboard heaters and/or radiators. Make sure that carpeting, furniture or draperies are not blocking them.


3.      Close that flue! Leaky fireplace dampers draw warm air out of your house 24 hours a day! Have them checked for air tightness.


4.      Bleed trapped air from radiators and hot water heaters.


5.      Get a heating tune-up! This can save money, spot a danger and make you more comfortable. What else could you want? Call us today, or fill out the form at the end of this report.


6.      Have your ductwork checked for leaks. If you’ve got split or leaky ductwork, this can save you a bundle! You should keep all the warm air you’re paying for! Call us to help.


7.      Change your return air filters. This is so simple, we’re going to be mad at you if you don’t do it monthly! Or call us with your filter size and we’ll provide one with a tune-up.


8.      Consider storm windows or more efficient windows. Although sometimes expensive, these can pay for themselves. Just getting a quote and estimate of savings will help. Most estimates are free.


9.      Lower your dishwasher and washing machine temperatures. They use hot water from your house supply and drain it in a hurry! That’s much more costly in cold weather.


10.  Call me and send me all your extra money for safekeeping. Just kidding! I hope you found some ways to save (but you probably already found other ways to spend it too!).
