Other ways to save money on heat this winter in Wisconsin
There are many easy energy conservation methods that can add up to impressive savings. Let’s take a closer look at just three ways you can improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Run your ceiling fans in reverse
During the winter, the warm air in your home rises toward the ceiling, while cooler air sinks to the floor. But most fan models have a switch that allows you to reverse the direction of the blades so that they spin clockwise in the winter. This draws the cooler air upward and pushes the warm air down, where you can feel it. Even though running your fans will use some electricity, you can still manage a net savings in energy use, generally about 2%, because you can set your thermostat lower and not notice the difference.
Install a smart programmable thermostat
Programmable thermostats allow you to set your temperatures so that you aren’t wasting energy when you aren’t home or when you’re asleep. Today’s smart thermostats can be controlled remotely, giving you greater control over your energy usage. This relatively inexpensive investment can potentially cut your energy usage by 5% or even 10%.
Close the gaps
Winterize windows with weather-stripping (for movable joints) and caulk (for nonmoving parts). Also, use a window kit to insulate the inside of your windows to keep cold air out and warm air in.
