You may be thinking, “what does an electrical company know about home heating equipment” – and quite frankly, we are not going to say that we’re experts in the field. But what we do know is that there are lots of alternative ways to create a cozier home that don’t require your thermostat or your furnace. See below to find out how you can stay warm and keep some money in your bank account this season:
- Turn on your ceiling fans. Yes, you heard that correctly – you can actually turn your ceiling fans on in reverse to draw warm air that has risen toward the ceiling back down to the living spaces of your home. And if you don’t have them installed already, we can take care of the whole process for you!
- Open the oven door. If you plan on using the oven tonight in order to make dinner, we recommend leaving it open for a few minutes once you take the food out. Even after you turn the appliance off, it will remain warm for a short period of time and you’d be surprised at how well it can heat the kitchen and neighboring rooms.
- Open up the blinds. On sunny winter days, even if the temperature is below freezing outside you can utilize the sun’s warm rays to heat your home. All you need to do is open up the blinds or curtains during the day and close them up at night to keep the warm air trapped inside.
Fans of any type can be added to your home without disrupting your living space by our highly qualified technicians. Fans are also a “green” solution for energy saving, which results in a lower electric bill each month!
