Open your curtains
I live in the southeast and, truth be told, I spend way more currency on my A/C than I do on my heating. Even so, I do think the fact that several millions of people are looking for ways to save cash once it is time to turn the gas furnace on. In my neck of the woods, most people have electric furnaces that are a piece of the central heating and cooling system. All that is involved for people around here is to simply change the switch on their temperature control, and moving the temperature control switch from cooling to heating is easily all we have to do once cold weather arrives. Other people, though, have much more efficient types of gas furnaces and often the A/C and the heating are not a part of one main central unit. Although these types of gas heaters are generally more efficient than central heating, because of the dire cold and the long time that winter is upon us, the two of us are still looking for ways to save some money when it comes to the heating bill each wintertime season. The first thing you should do is seal off any leaks you might have, and get some caulking and go around the windows and the doors. This will help keep the cold air out plus your gas furnace will not have to work as hard. The next thing you should do is let there be light. Open your curtains. Let the sun shine naturally as a gas furnace so that your air is already as warm as it can be when the gas furnace engages. The third thing you should do is don some warm clothes even around the house And put an extra blanket on the bed too. This may seem blatant, but lots of folks prefer to walk around in shorts or just a t-shirt, and that is just putting extra pressure on your gas furnace.
