How to Save Money When Using Temporary Heating Systems
One of the easiest ways to save money when using temporary heating equipment is to minimize its power consumption. Here are a few tips to do just that:
1. Set the Thermostat to 68 Degrees
68 degrees is just warm enough to keep your room comfortable without significantly increasing your electricity bill. You will likely notice a major uptick in power usage if you set your thermostat to anything higher than 68.
2. Turn off Your Heating System at Night
When it’s time to tuck in, you can save power by relying on warm blankets and pajamas rather than your heating system. Try to find a unit that has a “night mode,” which will turn off the system at a preset time.
3. Keep the Unit Clean
A dirty heater will run less efficiently and might even cause a fire. Be sure to clean the filter at least once each month and replace it twice per year. You should also schedule a yearly servicing from a professional to ensure the moving parts are well oiled and the connections are tight.
4. Open Your Home or Business to Sunlight
Your heating system doesn’t have to do all the work. Keep your curtains open during the day so sunlight can naturally increase your indoor temperature.
