Easting Heating & Air serves the entire Dallas metroplex, servicing, installing and repairing heating and A/C units. With winter not too far off in Dallas, we thought we’d share some heating tips to help you save some money. Maintaining a lower temperature, proper insulation, sealing air leaks and lowering your water heater temperature are all good items to consider.
One of the easiest ways to save money on your heating costs is to simply lower the temperature in your home. Reducing the thermostat by just one degree can save around 3 percent on your home energy bill. For those that can’t do with the decrease in heating temperature, lowering the temperature by 10-15 degrees while at work can help you save about 10 percent. You can add another 10 percent if you lower the thermostat by 10-15 degrees overnight.
If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, we can come out and install a thermostat that will allow you to program the temperature of you home according to the time of day.
In addition to saving on your air heating costs, you can also save on your gas bill or electric bill by reducing the temperature of your water heater. Most water heaters are set at 140 degrees. You can turn it down to 120 degrees without noticing a difference in your water temperature or the time it takes for you water to heat.
Proper insulation is imperative to keeping your home warm in the winter. Eastin Air can install new insulation in the attic or complete a free Home Energy Audit to determine if you have any areas of concern.
In addition to proper insulation, air leaks need to be sealed. Sealing air leaks is a quick service that will have a huge benefit on the integrity of your home, your energy bill and general warmth of your home. If air is leaking out, the heat is leaving your home, causing your heater to work harder and costing you more money.
