Heating systems have been running throughout the South Jordan, UT for at least a few weeks, and the weather’s going to get colder before it gets warmer. We’re all used to paying more in heating bills every winter, but you shouldn’t let that reality hide the fact that you might be paying more than you should. A few upgrades around your home can make a huge difference on that front, and now is an excellent time to see if they might make a good fit. We’ve includes a brief list of suggestions below.
If you don’t yet have a maintenance schedule set up with a licensed technician, now is the perfect time to do so. It helps correct little problems like loose bolts and clogged burners that rob your system of efficiency. When applied over time, it can not only reduce the monthly cost of running your heater, but will lower wear and tear on individual components as well: minimizing the chances of a breakdown.
Humidifiers add moisture to your air, which is very important in the bone-dry confines of the Salt Lake City area. Not only can that make your home more comfortable and cut down on things like static electricity, but it will help ease the strain on your heating system by making the air feel warmer.
Energy Recovery Ventilators
When placed in your attic and connected to the HVAC system, these ingenious devices will swap the air out of your home without having to open the door. That keeps the air fresh and can cut down on germs, but also lowers the strain on your heating system. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, it could cut down on your bills by up to 40%.
