If you’re tired of opening your heating bills and being concerned over how high they are, there are things you can address to fix the problem. There are a few common reasons people pay too much to heat their homes.

Too Little Insulation

Many homes have too little insulation, especially older ones. This allows expensive heat to leave your home and makes your heater run all day long. You can fix this situation by increasing the amount of insulation in your attic and walls.

Leaky Ducts

It’s been found that the average home loses up to 30% of heated air out of leaky ducts. The air ends up in your attic or crawlspace instead of inside your home. You can hire HVAC companies to seal your ducts and save money on your heating bills.

Poor Heater Maintenance

A poorly maintained heater is inefficient. Schedule a tune-up annually, and it will have a solid effect on your heating bills.

Logan's Heating & Cooling offers preventative maintenance services in Clinton, MO. We maintain all makes and models of furnaces, heat pumps, central heaters, packaged systems, and mini-splits.

Turn the Temperature Down

You should set the temperature at 72 degrees—68 degrees is even better. This will save you 5% to 20% on your heating bills. You likely won’t notice the difference if you gradually lower the temperature.

Wear Layers

You can stay warm in a colder home by putting on layers of clothing. Put on a layered shirt, sweater, socks, or use a blanket. Your heating bill will thank you.

Buy a Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats make it very easy to efficiently heat your home. The thermostat will use AI to figure out when it should heat your home and when it can save money by not doing so.
