Trying to keep your Fort Wayne home at a comfortable temperature without spending an arm and a leg on heating or air conditioning?

Well, while nothing is quite as effective as air conditioning or gas-powered heating, there are still a lot of things one can do to lower that energy bill.

Here are some ideas!

Programmable Thermostat — It might be a little spendy upfront, but using a programmable thermostat will save you money and help with keeping your house at a good temperature.

Close Your Flue — If you don’t want to let heat escape the house, then close the chimney flue. That let’s a ton of heat escape out the top of a house.

Move Furniture — It sounds like a no-brainer, but make sure there is no furniture blocking the flow of air into and out of the room (vents, etc.). That’ll waste money and make any HVAC system less effective.

Use a Door Sweep — Is hot or cold air seeping beneath your doors? Consider installing a draft-defeating nylon door sweep to stop that from happening. It’s super cheap and easy to install.

Use Your Drapes — You can open your drapes to let in some free solar heat. And you can close the drapes to keep things cool. This is one of the easiest ways to increase or decrease the temperature inside a house.

Hope that helps!
