6 Cost-Saving Heating Tips

Everyone wants to be able to come home to a cozy warm house during the winter months. But not everyone wants to watch their heating bill skyrocket to keep their house a pleasant temperature. Luckily, with a bit of investing and awareness, you can have the best of both worlds. Our professionals at Signature HVAC have devised this list of six cost-saving heating tips to keep your bills down and your home temperature up this winter season.

6 Tips to Help Keep Your Pennsylvania Heating Costs Down

  1. Change your air filters. Our first tip is something you should honestly be doing year-round, but becomes much more important during extreme seasons (that is, summer and winter). At least once a month, go around your house and check up on your air filters. If any of them looks dirty, make sure you replace it! Not only will a dirty air filter strain your system and cost you in heating bills, it can eventually cause bigger problems.
  2. Keep your vents open. Because of the way ventilation and HVAC systems are designed, closing heat registers in your house actually costs more in the long run. Closing off your vents reduces your system’s air flow, and causes a build-up of air pressure in your ductwork that can lead to all kinds of problems. So remember: Don’t shut your vents! Open them up, and keep your rugs and furniture clear.
  3. Invest in weatherproofing. Unless you’ve already weatherproofed your home (in which case—good for you!), odds are good that you’re losing a lot of heat from tiny gaps and holes throughout your house. Check and (if need be) replace the weather-stripping on all the doors and windows in your home and cover your windows with plastic film to cut off any drafts.
  4. Let the light in. Speaking of little things adding up, don’t discount the power of sunlight! Even in the winter months, sunlight can pull its weight in keeping your house warm. Throw open your curtains and pull up your blinds if it’s bright and sunny outside. The warm sunshine will serve to both reduce the weight load on your heating system and to pep up your home.
  5. Insulate your ducts. According to ENERGY STAR®, somewhere between 20 and 30 percent of the air moving through homeowners’ ventilation systems is lost to gaps, leaks, and sections of improperly connected ductwork. Eliminating these air leaks can make your heating system much more efficient, but may be a job for an HVAC professional—someone who knows where gaps can be closed, and what material is best to do it.
  6. Schedule your annual HVAC maintenance. If you haven’t already done so, contact an HVAC expert to have a certified technician give your system its annual check-up. Maintenance on your heating system will not only keep it running at its best, but it will keep it running longer without need for replacement parts or repairs.

"Bob Seeger was our technician this time around. His level of professionalism was exceptional - it really stood out! Overall we are very happy that we switched to Signature several years ago!"

-Mark Kenney

"The Signature techs who come out to our house are always top-notch professionals. Very courteous, careful, and thorough. They always provide great explanations of the work that they are doing. I never feel like I am being pressured into unnecessary work or equipment replacement (like I used to feel with Service Experts). Today, Wade was the tech who came out. He was here exactly on time at 8am, and was done within an hour. Great work and another great service experience from Signature! Update 9/27/2016 - Today Bob Seeger came out to service our system in preparation for the winter. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and courtesy. Before he started, we sat down and he clearly explained what he would be doing as part of the maintenance, and we agreed upon the need to replace the filter on the main unit, and also to perform humidifier maintenance as part of the work. After the work was complete he made recommendations for overall system enhancements that we should consider. Signature really has top-notch people working for them, and I continue to be extremely happy that we switched over to them several years ago."

-Mark Kenney

"Bob Seeger was our person to service our furnace and water heater. He showed me a problem with our water heater that could have been a major problem. He was very honest, great and so efficient! He fixed the problem. I am kind of hoping he will be the one to work with in the spring."

-Debbie Kaba

"Always feel confident with the work performed by Danny from Signature."

-William Stolting

"Bob was quite knowledgeable of the type of geothermal system that I have in my house. Before completing the annual maintenance/tune-up that I had requested, he asked relevant questions about my geothermal system (e.g., date of installation, last service, temperature preference, electric usage, etc.). After inspecting and servicing my system, Bob explain service that my system needed now and recommendations that would benefit my system. He explained the options in a non-pressured approach, as well as, the benefit in joining Signature HVAC's service plan which was helpful. Throughout the service visit, Bob was courteous, friendly and respectful. My wife and I were very satisfied and we plan to continue to use Signature HVAC in the future."

-John Schmitt

"Bob did an excellent job. He showed up on time, was courteous, and respectful. I recommend using Bob S from Signature Heating and Air-conditioning."

-Dennis Carlson

-Adam Lusk

"Bob was very professional and informative on the heating & air condition job at my house. He is a very nice and caring person! Thank you!"

-Colleen Esgro

"Your whole team is outstanding."

-John price

"Daniel Cross (Signature) completed a thorough and quick fall service on my heating systems. What I liked best about Danny is that he spoke to me as a knowledgeable customer rather than treating me like a clueless homeowner. So refreshing to be treated with respect by an HVAC provider! He had an opportunity to "upsell" me on a service, but was honest and told me that it wasn't valuable in my situation. I would certainly trust him to service my equipment again, and would definitely recommend him to a friend."

-Susan Wentz

"Thanks again for walking me through the process and pointing out what was going on in my system. Mold be gone! Professional and friendly service. Thanks for your help."

-Mia Bosna

"Travis is another courteous, fine professional working for you!"

-John price

-Ric DeAngelis

"We are very pleased with Signature and their very knowledgeable Technicians. We will be continuing our By-Annual service/tune-up with them...."

-Ric DeAngelis

"I have used Signature for about 10 years now. They provide excellent service. Bob Seeger was my most recent technician and he was on time, polite, informative, and technically proficient. I highly recommend signature for your HVAC needs. I have geothermal, and they are excellent at this technology."

-Charlie Phillips

"Mike B came out for the biannual check of the upstairs system--we had replaced the downstairs system in June---we are very satisfied. Mike was thorough, very professional, answered all my (sometimes inane) questions and kept the house clean. Good job Mike and thanks."
