Here are some ways you can make things a little easier on your household expenses by improving your home’s efficiency. Follow these tips and you can save without giving up comfort this winter.

Tune up your heating system

Regular maintenance by Santa Energy’s service technicians will help your home’s furnace or boiler run at its best possible performance. The tune-up also allows your service technician to identify and repair issues before they could lead to a potentially larger repair bill.

Be smart with your programmable thermostat

Did you know that using a programmable thermostat correctly could save you 10% or more on your heating bills? Set your thermostat to help control your usage.

Let the sun provide free heating

During the day, leave your curtains and blinds open to take advantage of the Sun’s natural heat. Just make sure to close them at night.

Keep heat in the house

In an average American house, there are enough drafts around doors and windows as well as through walls and ceilings to equal a window left open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Seal those gaps with caulk, weatherstripping, or expanding foam and you can cut your heating costs by up to 20%!
