HVAC Repair in Philadelphia & Easy Ways to Save on Heating Bills this Winter

January 9, 2024

Winter is here, and it’s going to be a cold one in most cities around the country.

Clean your furnace and vents

If your furnace and vents are filled with dust, your heating system has to work harder to move the warm air, which will make your heating bills much higher. Make sure you regularly clean your vents and replace your air filters to keep the air moving easily.

Seal vents in rooms you don’t use

If you have extra rooms like an office or guest room that you don’t use regularly, you should close the vents and the door so the warm air will flow to only the rooms you are using.

Turn your thermostat down at night

If you have heavy blankets and flannel sheets, you can set your thermostat lower at night.

Turn on ceiling fans

You probably use ceiling fans in the summer to cool down a room, but they can help heat up a room in the winter, too. It helps distribute the warm air and provide better ventilation. To use your ceiling fans in the winter, make sure they are turning clockwise to trap heat. When they turn counter-clockwise, it pushes the hot air up.

Open your curtains

On a sunny winter day, the sun can help keep your house warm and bright. Just make sure you close the curtains at night to help contain the heat inside your house.

Insulate doors and windows

Hot air can easily escape through cracks around doors and windows, and this poor insulation can really increase your heating bills. Weather stripping is inexpensive to fill in the cracks and keep the warm air inside, and clear plastic window treatments can keep heat from escaping through your windows.

  • “I had a great experience with Chud. Lewis and Sebastian did a fantastic job. They were communicative and on time, explained everything that they would be doing to clean my HVAC ductwork, answered all of my questions, were honest about not being able to properly clean my dryer vent, and cleaned up after they were done. They also went above and beyond, even cleaning dust from each slat of the return vent. Highly recommend.”

  • “We rely on Chud Duct Cleaning to perform our regular duct cleaning in our home. Your service technicians Lewis and Sebastian arrived promptly, introduced themselves and got right to work. Our home has many vents behind and under furniture, which was moved and replaced as if nothing ever happened. My home was carefully prepared and respected throughout the entire process. An access panel was replaced for a more pleasant look and better access in the future. I will not hesitate to use this company for service again.”
