Living in Toronto means we are all lucky enough to live in one of the greatest places on the planet, but that also means that for about 6 months of the year we may have to use our furnace, boiler, baseboard heating, ductless heat pump, fireplace or another heating source to keep our house and our family warm. The heating costs associated with heating our homes can greatly vary depending on the type of heating our home uses. Regardless of what it is there are some ways to ensure that your heating costs don’t get out of control this winter and into the spring.

4 Ways To Cut Heating Costs That Won’t Break The Bank

  1. Dress for the Weather – It’s no secret, it’s cold outside side on the streets of Toronto and it’s not going to change until March, April or even May. Leaving t-shirts in the closet might not be easy, but putting on warmer clothes can certainly let you turn down the heat in your home a little. If you lower the temperature in your home by just 1 degree for 8 hours, you can reduce your home heating costs by 1%. Over the course of the winter that’s a lot of money back in your pocket just by wearing a sweater. When your programmable thermostat lowers the temperature through the day when no one is home you save even more.
  2. Keep Cold Air Out, Warm Air In – Drafts are one of the worst offenders when it comes to reducing heating costs. Block drafts around doorways and you’ll notice a big difference in how warms the exterior rooms in your home are. Weather stripping is a great way to keep doorways tight and shrink wrapping your windows can help keep cold air out and warm air in. These simple tips allow a room to keep an extra 50% of its heat.
  3. Keep The Air Circulating – Is anyone but the family cat sleeping in the guest room tonight? No? Then close the door. While the room will still be heated when your furnace or boiler turns on, the temperature of that space won’t affect your thermostat so you will essentially be heating up a smaller space, at least your thermostat will think so. You also should do the same for any spaces in the home that are infrequently used, like the laundry room. If you’ve got the drying running it’s likely warm enough in there already.
  4. Schedule A Boiler Or Furnace Maintenance Appointment – It’s a fact: When your HVAC appliances are properly maintained they operate more efficiently. Cleaning it out and changing the filters is the best and easiest way to keep it operating as well as it can be. The more efficient it runs, the more you save on heating costs. A furnace or boiler that’s not functioning properly can cost you a lot of money, especially when it’s working overtime to keep you and your family warm throughout the cold Toronto winter.
