If you live in the Northeast, you know firsthand how important it is to keep your home heated throughout the long, cold winter months. Unfortunately, keeping your home warm and cozy does not come without a price. By now, you’ve probably seen a few whopping heating bills come through after this year’s long winter season.
There are steps you can take to avoid losing too much heat in your home. Check your windows and doors for gaps and cracks, and seal these as best as possible. Make sure vents in floors and walls are closed. Even open electrical outlets can let in minimal amounts of cool air. Consider using child-safe plugs for any that are not currently in use.
Your water-heating system, or boiler, plays a huge part in your monthly heating costs as well. Older models can have leaks and cracks in the heat exchanger if they haven’t properly been inspected in a while. If you’ve been putting off on upgrading your system because of the cost, consider the amount of money you could be saving long-term by replacing your current boiler. You may not be aware of it, but up to 15% of your energy bill is due to heating your water.
