Tips for Reducing Your Home’s Heating Bill During the Winter Months

Hudson, NH Homeowner Seeks Suggestions

Exterior windows and doors can be a common area for drafts in the home. Installing weatherstripping around the door frame or window can make a big difference. Placing a door sweep at the bottom of exterior doors can help to minimize heat loss. If there are any leaks in the home, either in the foundation, siding or windows, caulk these to prevent the cold air from entering.

A homeowner in Hudson was looking for some tips to keep her heating bill manageable during the cold New England months. Seeking advice, she contacted Joyce Cooling & Heating. The following simple steps can help to keep your heating bill down during the cold days of winter, making a big difference this season.

Insulate the Attic

One of the biggest losses of heat in a home is through the attic. Adding insulation to this area of the home can make a big difference not only in your heating bill, but in the cost to cool the home during the summer as well.

Install a Programmable Thermostat

By programming your thermostat to lower the temperature a few degrees during the times when the home is empty or at night, you can make a significant dent in your heating bill.

Close the Fireplace Damper

When not in use, the fireplace damper should be closed. Leaving this open allows the heated air in the home to exit through the chimney, making your heating system have to work even harder.

Insulate the Hot Water Heater

If your hot water heater is not a newer unit that has factory installed insulation, adding insulation around the heater can help to keep the water hot longer, while expending less energy.

Take Advantage of Ceiling Fans

Setting the blades on your ceiling fans to move clockwise will help to make the room feel more comfortable by pushing the warm air down.

Even these simple steps to keep the heat inside your home can make a big difference in your winter bills. The homeowner in Hudson plans to implement all of these and should see a big difference in the cost to heat her home.


Testimonials & Reviews

We had central air conditioning installed last year by Joyce and were very satisfied with the job. Today, John N. serviced the unit and all of the components and he was incredibly thorough and professional. He explained exactly what was serviced and what to avoid (greenery around the outdoor unit). I highly recommend Joyce Cooling & Heating!

I also really appreciate how flexible they were with our 3 dogs, they did a great job ensuring materials /parts during install kept tidy to ensure the dogs didn't get into anything. Thanks for the great work!
