Use Space Heaters Strategically
Don’t use space heaters to heat large areas. However, they are perfect to heat up an office or a small room. If you work from home and you’re the only one there, turn on a space heater rather than paying to heat the whole house. When you’re done using the room, remember to turn off your space heater to keep your home safe.
Reverse Your Ceiling Fans
Most ceiling fans have a switch on the fan body that will make it change directions. This helps the hot air circulate lower in rooms, rather than collecting up at the ceiling. It can help you stay warm even when you’re keeping the thermostat set lower.
Close the Right Vents
You don’t want to close more than 5 vents in your house at a time so you’ll want to do it strategically so you can funnel the warm air where you want it. If you have large open areas, close the upstairs vents because warm air will flow up anyway.
Check Your Furnace Filters
If your furnace filter is dirty, your furnace will have to work harder – and use more energy – to keep your home even slightly warm. Simply changing those furnace filters regularly can keep your Colorado Springs furnace working efficiently so you won’t have to spend as much on energy costs.
