Winter Heat Conservation in West Fargo, ND

With the days getting shorter and temperatures getting cooler, winter is just around the corner. By being proactive in the fall, you can conserve heat this winter. This saves you money on your energy bills and makes your home more comfortable.

Weatherization

Weatherize your home this fall. Seal any air leaks you find. It’s one of the most cost-effective ways of conserving energy. Use silicone caulk as it’s designed to stand up to outdoor weather. Air leaks typically occur around doors, windows, chimneys, vents and where wires enter your home.

Check Insulation

Have the insulation in your home’s crawlspace or basement inspected to make sure it’s adequate. Do the same for the insulation in your attic. A well-insulated home keeps warm air in and cold air out.

Upgrade Your Thermostat

Use a programmable or smart thermostat to conserve energy. You can set a schedule on a programmable thermostat so you only heat your home when it’s occupied. Some smart thermostats even learn that schedule so they can heat your home most efficiently.

Get Furnace Maintenance

Schedule maintenance for your furnace every fall to keep it operating efficiently. It also helps make sure it doesn’t break down when you need it most.

Use Your Dryer in the Evening

Clothes dryers generate a lot of heat, so you may as well take advantage of this. Do loads of laundry in the evening and open the door to the laundry room. While you may hear its noise, this ensures the heat that is generated also helps warms your home.

Close Curtains

Close your curtains in the evening to keep heat indoors. Add curtains to any windows that lack them. These areas are major sources of heat loss.
