As the Midwest suffered a polar vortex this past week, your monthly utility bill has probably increased. While it is inconvenient for your bill to go up, there are many ways you can save money with your energy use. Leith Heating & Cooling HVAC is here to guide you in saving money on your monthly statements with these small adjustments:

  • Change the filter in your furnace
  • Ensure there are no holes in your doors or windows
  • Keep your vents open
  • Turn lights off when not in use
  • Use high-efficiency light-bulbs
  • Unplug appliances when not in use
  • Wash clothes in cold water
  • Take shorter/cooler showers

Here are some things you should avoid while trying to save money during winter:

  • Avoid changing the thermostat frequently
  • Do not use supplemental heating devices other than your furnace
  • Avoid taking long showers
  • Do not suddenly change your HVAC system from “AC” to “Heat”
