It's Getting Cold! Tips to Keep Warm & Save Money

Who dreads seeing their BC Hydro bill in the colder months? I do! I can think of so many better ways of spending my money. I live in a corner unit with floor to ceiling windows and its always a struggle to warm up my condo, especially without a fireplace. Here's some helpful tips to winterize your home before the tempertures dip to below zero and stay there.

 

1. Use electric fireplace instead of a thermostat - Bonus: the fireplace brings a warm and welcoming ambiance to a  room.

2. Use ceiling fan - Especially helps if you have high ceilings, the heat travels to the top of the room and this helps circulate it.

4. Keep thermostat at 20 degrees celsius - For those who dont have a fireplace dont over work your thermostat. Setting your thermostat lower can save you money.

3. Close your curtains - helps insulate the room.

4. Check your furnace - replace or clean regularly.

5. Windows & Doors - Make sure they are airtight.

6. Move your couch - Have space between the baseboard heaters and couch. Avoid the couch absorbing all the heat and start warming your home.
