How To Reduce Heating Bills

The first step to reducing your heating bills is to tend to small problems early. This prevents excessive strain on your system, pushing off extensive heater repairs. There are some additional steps to keep your system running efficiently, and keep both your utility and repair costs down.

  • Change Your Air Filter Regularly
    The easiest thing to do for your heater is changing the furnace air filter regularly. For central air systems, this is usually every 30 to 90 days for 1- or 2-inch filters. If your system uses larger filters, they may last longer. Plan to check the filter monthly to know that you’re getting it changed as soon as it’s needed. While checking it, gently vacuum off the loose dirt to give your system an extra efficiency boost.
  • Use Thermostat Programs
    The Department of Energy suggests you can save up to 10% of your annual heating costs by using thermostat programs. The idea is to reduce the temperature by 7 to 10 degrees while you’re away from your home. To reach the maximum 10% savings, you’ll need to keep it this low for about 8 hours each day.
  • Double-Check Your Insulation
    Your home requires the proper insulation to keep the heat from escaping outside. For the Tampa Bay area, the recommended insulation rating is R30 to R60, which equates to about 10 to 14 inches of most standard insulation materials.
  • Inspect & Seal Your Ducts
    Your warm air may escape through neglected and damaged ducts. This causes your system to run longer while trying to reach your set temperature. Consider having them professionally inspected and sealed to keep the warm air arriving at its intended place in your home.

Signs You Need Heat Pump Repair

Most heaters and heat pumps give some indication they require repair. Obviously, if it won’t cycle on, you likely need some repair. However, when you catch the initial signs early, you can often avoid premature early repairs. If you notice any of these, call to schedule your heater or heat pump repair.

  • Inconsistent Heating
    If your home feels warmer in some areas over others, you may need a heat pump repair. When your system can’t circulate the warm air effectively, it leaves some areas cooler, usually the furthest away from your system. There are other culprits to check, such as insulation, drafts, and more. One of our expert HVAC technicians can quickly tell if your system is causing the heating issues.
  • Unusual Odors
    Some odors should raise alarms if they occur while your heater runs. These include burning smells, but especially a rotten egg smell or a heavy chemical smell, like formaldehyde. If you experience the latter two, get out of your home and call for help immediately, as they could indicate a gas leak or a cracked heat exchanger.
  • Loud Noises
    Your heater may make some quieter noises, like the whirring of the circulating fan, or a whoosh when the gas burner first ignites. Any loud sounds, like screeching, rattling when the unit first starts, or especially a banging or booming that shakes the house, all need investigation. Some may be as simple a worn component, like the circulating fan. Others may indicate an issue with incomplete fuel burning or even a cracked heat exchanger.
  • Low Airflow
    Inadequate air coming from your supply vents inhibits your home from heating effectively. Before calling to schedule a heat pump repair, check to make sure your air filter isn’t clogged. If that’s in good condition, it may indicate the need for duct cleaning, maintenance, or a failing circulating fan motor.
  • Increased Energy Consumption
    Watch your monthly energy consumption for unusual spikes. If you notice one month was exceptionally higher, and especially if it wasn’t frigidly cold, you may need a heater or heat pump repair. This indicates your system is struggling to meet your set temperature, and running longer cycles.
