As the weather begins to cool and we turn to our heating equipment for better comfort, the amount of energy that we use becomes a big issue. To help you out, we’ve compiled a few heating alternatives that you can utilize this month and for the winter months to come.
It’s definitely hard to beat the sun when it comes to capturing energy. The sun isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, which means the installation of solar panels will provide you with a never-ending source of energy that will save you money for years to come.
Our own planet provides a source of energy that is only second to the power of our sun. There is more than enough energy to be found right under our feet. A geothermal energy system will utilize the energy below the Earth’s surface to help lower your monthly bills and keep you warm.
Radiant Floor Heating
Want to get rid of cold floors while heating up your entire home and saving money in the process? Radiant floor heating is easy to install and can immediately lower your energy usage and overall monthly utility costs.
Unless every room in your house is always occupied, there’s no reason to heat your entire home at once. Instead, pick up a space heater or two and move them around, as needed. This is especially useful if you live alone or if everyone typically stays in the same room together. Even occasional usage will improve your heating efficiency.
If your home has a fireplace installed, then you probably already know how great sitting in front of it on a chilly night can be. For homes without a fireplace, there are electric, portable units that you can take from room to room just like a space heater, except that these heating systems are more aesthetically pleasing.
