Living in Florida, you probably don’t need to run your heater every day during the winter. However, it’s important that you have a reliable heating system in place in the event that a cold spell strikes. Del-Air specializes in installing and repairing furnaces and heat pumps throughout Central Florida. Additionally, we offer valuable advice to help our clients save on heating costs during the cold season. Check out the money-saving heating tips below and then call Del-Air for any heating services that you may need.

Top Energy-Saving Tips from Del-Air

Invest in Insulation

Heating costs on the high side last winter? The culprit may not be your furnace but your insulation system. When insulation is old or damaged, your HVAC system must work harder to replace the heat lost through walls and windows. To keep your energy bills low, make sure your insulation is in good condition. You may even want to upgrade to a more suitable form of insulation depending on your home’s needs.

Install a Programmable Thermostat

Interested in saving on heating costs without sacrificing your family’s comfort? A programmable thermostat lets you schedule the heat to turn on when you’re home and off while you’re at work or school. As an added bonus, you can set the heater to come on moments before you get home at night, so you won’t have to walk into a cold house.

Seal Up Leaks

Do you feel like you’re running your furnace nonstop? If so, you may be losing heat to gaps in the walls and around windows. To cut down on lost energy, take the time to caulk and seal air leaks in the walls, floors, and ceilings as well as around plumbing systems. You can also position foam gaskets behind electric outlets to prevent heat from being lost to the outside.

Open the Curtains

Although updating your insulation and installing a thermostat can save you big bucks in the long run, these options do require a small initial investment. However, there’s one way to cut your heating bill without spending a dime: open your curtains. A simple step, opening the curtains allows sunlight to enter the home, providing natural heat and light. You can lower your utility bills while enjoying the warmth of the sun on your skin throughout the day.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
