Winter is coming. With temperatures outside dropping, many homes will start to see their heating bills increase. Learn what factors can cause your bill to go up and what you can do to lower it while still keeping your home warm.
WHAT INCREASES YOUR HEATING BILL?
There are a few factors that can contribute to your heating bill being higher than normal in the winter months
Obviously, as it gets colder outside, we want to be warmer inside our homes. This causes people to set their thermostats higher than normal to really crank up the heat. Depending on the temperature change between your home and the outside world, your furnace could be working overtime to maintain the heat that keeps you comfortable.
One way to combat the chill in the winter is to pile on layers. Whether it’s extra clothes or multiple blankets, all of these items are going to need to be washed at some point. This will result in having to do more laundry, and constantly running the dryer will also increase your energy or heating bill.
