3 Ways You’re Wasting Energy This Winter

In Pine Bluff, Arkansas, power bills often increase during winter. It’s easy to use more electricity than you need while trying to stay warm and comfortable. Many people with drafty doors, an inefficient heating system or a dirty air filter waste energy. Here are some ways to fix these issues:

Drafty Doors and Windows

Leaky windows and doors can let cold air into your home. Fortunately, installing caulk or weatherstripping is easy and inexpensive. You can also replace cracked caulk or worn weatherstripping, add storm doors and install heavy curtains for your windows. Some doors will also let you adjust their height by turning a few screws. Weatherstripping for your garage door can also help you keep that area warm.

An Inefficient Heating System

If your heater is more than 10 years old, you can lower your utility bills by replacing it with a more modern, efficient model. A new heating system is a big investment, but it’ll eventually pay for itself through energy savings. It can also increase the value of your house. Even if your heater is new, have it checked by a professional at least once per year. That way, you can have any problems repaired before they start wasting power.

A Dirty Air Filter

Your HVAC system’s air filter captures contaminants like dust, pollen, dirt and pet dander. As a result, it prevents allergy symptoms and other health issues. However, a dirty filter can reduce your system’s airflow and force it to use more energy. You should change your air filter at least every few months for better indoor air quality and HVAC efficiency.
