  • Sealing cracks around your home’s windows and doors with caulk or weather stripping.
  • Adding a programmable thermostat so that you can more easily control the temperature in your home, which will also enhance energy efficiency.
  • Cleaning or replacing your furnace filter regularly.
  • Checking your home's heating vents to ensure they are open and aren’t blocked by any obstructions
  • Replacing your old furnace with a newer, more efficient model if you’ve had your current furnace for more than 15 years.
  • Installing insulation to your attic to keep heat from escaping.
  • Checking your roof to confirm your shingles are intact, and that no holes or areas need sealing.
