This year, Austin, Texas is experiencing a colder and longer winter than anticipated. Thankfully, you can advantage of the cold weather by following some of our easy tips to help you save money on heating and cooling.
Use the natural heat from the sun
Reap the benefits from the natural sunlight during the daytime and open your curtains and blinds to warm up the inside of your home. Remember to close the blinds when the sun goes down to prevent any drafts.
Layer up at night
Layer on extra blankets and pajamas at night to allow a lower setting on your thermostat at night. You can lower your bills by 10% by lowering the temperature by 10 degrees just at bedtime. This way, you don’t have to compromise your comfort AND you get to save.
Retain the moisture
Retain the moisture in your room or home by using a humidifier. This helps because it adds moisture to the air which preserves heat better and feels warm.
Other things you can be mindful of:
- Make sure none of your registers or vents are covered or closed.
- Lock all your windows to ensure the seal is at its tightest.
- Limit your use of exhaust fans in the bathroom and kitchen areas.
