While some increase in energy costs during winter is expected, your heating bill shouldn’t make you faint, gasp for air or cry. So why are your energy bills through the roof this winter? Beaver Brothers has some tips to help you find the source of your rising energy costs.

Thermostat set to A/C

Sometimes your house never seems to get warmer, forcing you to turn up the thermostat to no effect. If this is the case for you, check the thermostat first. It may have accidentally been set to A/C, which would explain why you can’t get warm! Make sure your thermostat is set to HEAT this winter.

ON thermostat setting

The next step is to check the fan setting on the thermostat. Is it set to ON? If so, the fan will run continuously, even when there’s no heat coming from the furnace. This will blow cold air, causing you to turn up the heat and waste money. Set your fan to AUTO so it only runs when it’s needed.

High heating bill? Check the air filter

Clean air filters are a must, especially during winter. Change your air filter at least once a month to keep your heating system running efficiently and your energy bills lower.

Undersized heating system? Call Beaver Brothers

If your heating system is too small, it will never be able to efficiently or effectively heat your home. You’ll have the heat cranked, and the furnace or heat pump will waste energy trying to warm a structure that is just too large. Call Beaver Brothers to assess your heating equipment and see if you need a larger unit for your home.

Gentlemen, We just got our monthly Home Energy Report from Duke Power. The report tracks our kilowatt hour usage monthly going back a year and compares our usage to the “Average Home” and that of an energy “Efficient Home.” Our track record before February showed that we ranged between 200-800 kilowatt hours above the Average Home. The downward spiral of our energy usage tracks exactly to the installation of the geothermal HVAC unit by you and your team. We are now tracking consistently with the “Average Home” and are only about 200 kilowatt hours above the “Efficient Home.” The big number however is that we are 1,000 kilowatt hours below our usage in June of last year! Now, I know that circumstances out of our control can raise or lower kilowatt hour usage, but Jan and I are convinced the numbers relate directly to the geothermal system. From a dollar standpoint, we are paying a range of $50-75 less per month to Duke Power. Just thought that you and your team would appreciate a testimonial regarding the value of their work and the products that they represent. Sincerely, Rick
