Check Your Fans: Most ceiling fans have a reverse and a forward setting. You want to make sure yours are set to reverse during the winter months. This will push the hot air that rises to the ceiling back down to the ground where you can feel it and enjoy it, eliminating the need to feel like turning the thermostat up.
Clean Furnace Filters: By changing out your furnace filters once a month, you’ll cut down on the amount of energy needed, as you won’t need the same amount of power to push through dirty filters full of dust and debris. If you don’t want to buy them once a month, make sure to at least start the season with new ones and then clean regularly.
