Conservation Advice

Save money. Save the environment.

Hewitt Home Heating can help you enhance your home’s energy efficacy with an annual tune-up, an equipment upgrade or a FREE heating efficiency analysis. However, there’s always room for more improvements. With that in mind, take a look at these Seasonal and Year-Round Conservation Tips to help you save money and the environment…

Fall/Winter Tips:

Open your window shades to let some solar power in to heat your home free of charge

Keep your radiators clean and dust-free to improve air quality and heating efficiency

Clean or replace your furnaces filter at least once a month

Seal off any gaps around your doors and windows to keep warm air in and cold air out

Clean and check your ductwork, repairing any leaks you find

Adjust your thermostat when you plan to leave your home for a while

Lower the water heater thermostat to 120 degrees

Run ceiling fans backward to push warm air down from the ceiling

Spring/Summer Tips:

Keep the shades drawn when you leave your home and when the sun would be shining directly inside

Plant trees and bushes outside east-facing windows to improve air flow and create shade that will help cool your home

Have your air conditioner serviced at least once a year

On cooler nights, open your windows and turn off your air conditioner all together

Regularly dust and vacuum cooling vents to improve air quality and cooling efficiency

Make sure that your air conditioning pipes have been properly sealed and caulked

Clean or replace air conditioning filters once a month

Do not place lamps, TV sets or other heat-emitting appliances near air conditioning thermostats

Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescents or LEDs, which produce less heat

Year-Round Tips:

Insulate! Insulate! Insulate!

Install a programmable thermostat to save up to 10% a year in heating and cooling costs

Keep all lights turned off when you aren’t in the room

Install sensors, dimmers, or timers to further regulate lighting use

Unplug appliances when not in use

Use your dishwasher sparingly or only run full loads

Vacuum the dust off your refrigerator coils every three months

Take short showers instead of baths and use low-flow shower heads

Look for the ENERGY STAR® label on all new appliances you buy
