With temperatures dropping and price inflation rising, your Eastland Heating & Cooling family knows the importance of finding ways to cut back and save where you can. Keeping a home heated throughout the winter season can cost a pretty penny, and where your furnace is concerned, we got you covered! Today, we dive into a few helpful tips to maximize the most energy savings out of your home heating system.

Why Use a Programmable or Smart Thermostat?

If you have a standard thermostat, you may want to consider upgrading to a more energy-efficient thermostat. Current technology has a couple of modern options concerning energy-efficient thermostats. Two great options you can look into are programmable thermostats and smart thermostats. With a programmable thermostat, if you have a specific time you leave and come home every day, you can set your thermostat to coincide with those times. A smart thermostat connects to WiFi and can detect when there is no one home to adjust its temperature in order to save energy. This feature comes in handy for those whose work schedules fluctuate a tad more. Consider using the Nest Learning Thermostat if you are leaning towards a smart thermostat. If you have any questions regarding what the best option would be for your home and lifestyle, call us today so we can send out one of our friendly and knowledgeable NATE-certified technicians to your home to go over the best choice for you.

Does the Perfect Thermostat Setting Exist?

Experts say that 68 degrees Fahrenheit is the magic number that hits the spot. It falls somewhere between keeping your home warm and toasty but sufficient enough to make a noticeable difference on your energy bill. Furthermore, if you are digging for those extra savings, you can lower the temperature more than this when your household is asleep at night. You can gradually do this and reduce the temperature one degree at a time until you find a level comfortable for you and your family.

What Should You Do With the Furnace When You Travel? 

Got traveling plans? Suppose you are headed somewhere for a portion of the season. Whether that timeframe is a couple of days to over a week-long, you may have already planned to turn your furnace off when you’re gone. In truth, we don’t recommend doing this at all. Turning your heating system off could lead to appliances and pipes freezing. Instead, we suggest keeping your furnace on a low setting and letting it run while you are away.

Hopefully, this has been enlightening to you, and you will see a noticeable difference in your heating bill. We care about you, your family, and your home at Eastland Heating & Cooling. If we can help you in any way with your HVAC system, please call us as soon as an issue arises.
