Winter, even here in Texas, can wreak havoc on your energy bill. Drastic weather and temperature changes, holiday lights and large family gatherings can all take a toll. Save some stress and save some money with these energy-saving tips during the winter months.
Check your windows
Older or poorly installed windows can cause drafts and air leaks, letting all of the heat, or A/C, out of your house. This causes the air conditioning system to work harder while also increasing energy use. Window World TX offers a variety of solutions for window problems. Call or visit our website for information on how to make sure your windows aren’t causing extra energy use.
Be careful with the heat
Weather can be finicky, especially in Texas. Cold mornings don’t necessarily mean cold days. Limit thermostat adjustments and layer clothing to ward off the cold in the morning. As the day continues and gets warmer, you can simply remove some layers of clothing. This ensures that the heating and cooling system won’t be bombarded with too many adjustments and keeps energy usage low.
Keep the door closed
This seems like common sense, but sometimes we all forget to keep the doors closed. There are times, like when we let out the dogs to take care of their business, when we stand in the doorway for quite a while – no matter how cold it is. Running out to the car really quickly? Close the door behind you!
Keeping up with energy usage around the holidays can seem tedious. However, with a few minor adjustments, your home can be festive and cozy while using less energy.
