Lower Your Cincinnati Heating Bills


Most Cincinnati homeowners have something in common — they all want to lower their heating bills! While using less heat is an obvious answer, most homeowners don’t want to sacrifice their comfort to save a buck or two. The heating pros at Nelson Comfort have put together some affordable and easy-to-implement suggestions which will help you save money on your heating bills this winter.

Schedule preventative maintenance

Yes, it’s almost 2016 — but it’s not too late to schedule a preventative maintenance tune-up for your furnace or heat pump if you forgot to do so in the fall! A tune-up will still improve system efficiency, which can lower your heating bills for the rest of the season.

Stay on top of furnace filter changes

This winter, make filter changes a priority. Change your filters according to the schedule recommended by the filter manufacturer. Because you’re using your heating system heavily during the winter months, it’s a good idea to take a look at the filter every month or so to make sure it isn’t heavily caked with contaminants; if it is, replace your furnace filter sooner.

Use your programmable thermostat wisely

If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, it’s time to upgrade! Make sure your programmable thermostat schedule are timed appropriately for the needs of your family. If work or school schedules have recently changed, take the time to adjust temperature schedules to eliminate energy waste from heating an empty home!

Run a humidifier

Dry winter air can make your home feel colder this winter. Humidifiers add necessary moisture to your air supply, which can help you feel warmer at slightly lower temperatures. Balancing humidity levels in your home offers other benefits, too, such as reduced allergy symptoms and protection for sensitive furnishings and household electronics.
