Save money with these Winter Tips

It appears that all those Southern Californians who wished for the cold, winter weather a few months ago have seen their wishes come true. The pass couple of weeks the southland has experienced some very cold weather making some of us regret wishing for it in the first place. The cold weather means your heater has been working actively to help keep your home at a warm, comfortable temperature. To avoid seeing your utility bill skyrocket this winter season, your friends at Advanced Comfort Solutions offer these winter energy saving tips to save you some money:

  • Keep your curtains open during the day to allow sunlight to naturally heat your home.
  • Keep your thermostat as low as is comfortable.
  • Ensure your furnace filter is being replaced accordingly, usually about once a month.
  • Turn off lights in unoccupied rooms.
  • Take shorter hot showers.
  • Set your programmable thermostat at a lower temperature when you’re not home and have it come back to a higher temperature when you return.
  • Upgrade to ENERGY STAR  certified appliances and electronics.
