Reduce your home heating bill this winter

Did you know that heating comprises about 60 per cent of your home’s energy bills during the winter??

Save your money and reduce your heating bills with these simple and cost-effective strategies:

  • Service your furnace. Clean, lubricate and adjust your unit to save up to 5 per cent on your heating costs. Replace air filters monthly to improve airflow and decrease energy use.
  • Remove window screens. Screens can block up to 20 per cent of the sun’s warm rays. Remove your screens and take advantage of nature’s heat.
  • Run ceiling fans in reverse. The clockwise direction pushes warm air back down to living areas and recycles up to 10 per cent of your home’s heat.
