As the vibrant colors of fall adorn the landscape, a subtle chill in the air reminds us that winter is just around the corner. This transitional season is the perfect time to tweak your home’s energy usage, ensuring a warm, comfortable, and cost-effective environment as the temperature continues to dip. Here are some practical tips to help you save energy and lower your utility bills this fall.

Seal the Drafts

Drafts can be a major culprit when it comes to heat loss. Inspect your home for any gaps or cracks in doors, windows, and walls. Use weather-stripping or caulk to seal these drafts and keep the warmth inside.

Service Your HVAC System

A well-maintained HVAC system operates more efficiently and consumes less energy. Schedule a professional tune-up with Anchor Mechanical to ensure your system is ready for the cooler months.

Embrace the Sun

Make the most of the sun’s natural warmth by opening curtains and blinds during the day to let sunlight in. As the sun sets, close them to retain the heat.

Install a Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat allows you to lower temperatures when asleep or away from home, reducing energy consumption without sacrificing comfort.

Insulate Your Attic and Walls

Proper insulation acts as a barrier to heat loss, keeping your home warm with less energy usage. Check the insulation in your attic and walls, and consider adding more if necessary.

Use Ceiling Fans Wisely

Reversing your ceiling fan in a clockwise direction pushes warm air down, helping distribute heat evenly throughout your home.
