Home Heating Tips for Augusta, Georgia and North Augusta, South Carolina
Let the sun shine in. No matter the temp outside, use the sun to help warm your house. Adjust blinds during the day so that they point the sun towards the ceiling. At night be sure to close them.
Move that warm air around. If you have ceiling fans, set it on low and reverse the rotation so that the you are pulling air from the floor up. Not only does this help make you feel comfy, but it also allows you to adjust the thermostat and give your AC or heating unit a much needed break. Your budget will also get some relief too.
Fireplaces are great amenities to have in a home. Who doesn’t love a warm fire on a cold night. When your fireplace is not in use, be sure that you have closed the damper. Also, it would be a good idea to use glass doors to help seal off the front of the fireplace. Doing these 2 things will help keep your heated air from escaping out the chimney.
Exhaust fans should be used sparingly. In the kitchen and bathrooms, these fans are a great tool to get unwanted air out of the house. However, exhaust fans can suck a lot of warm air out of your home quickly too. So, be sure that you run them only when needed.
Have your heating system inspected regularly. Be sure to keep your air filters clean too. The best defense against heating problems is to make sure your system is maintained year-round.
