How to Improve Your Heater’s Efficiency This Winter

Cold winters are nothing new to residents of Salt Lake City, UT, and with the new year here, your heater is likely working overtime. Higher bills are par for the course when you have to keep your house warm, but you might want to consider some new additions to your home that can help improve your heater’s efficiency. Those bills will drop not just this year, but for numerous winters to come, helping you recoup the investment you make into your home and putting money back into your pocket with reduced monthly bills. Here’s a few options for you to think about.

Energy Recovery Ventilators

When placed in your attic, an energy recovery ventilator will swap out the stale air in your home with fresh air from outside your home. Not only does this prevent germs and bacteria from circulating in the winter months (when you rarely open doors or windows to freshen the air), but it helps your home retain the heat that your furnace generates, cutting your bills by up to 40% in some cases (according to the U.S. Department of Energy).

Humidifiers

Low humidity makes the air feel colder, as well as contributing to colds, static electricity and that dry itchy feeling on your skin. A humidifier can help with all of that, not only making your household more comfortable, but ensuring that your heater doesn’t have to work quite so hard to do its job.

Heating Maintenance

It sounds obvious, but if you haven’t have your heater services in quite a while, it can affect its performances. A maintenance session will not only help prevent future repairs, but will improve your heater’s efficiency, allowing it to do its job for less for the rest of the winter.
