Gas Usage Tips for Your Home

Past winters have been unpredictable. The forecast can change at any moment!


Bolingbrook, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/13/2019 --As the temperatures cool down, the thermostats go up! There are plenty of way to regulate energy intake and keep the cost of home bills low. Customers can opt into a Fixed Rate Energy plan, as well as, follow simple ways to preserve energy in one's home!

Drafts are a HUGE factor in the winter. Even the smallest draft can cause the temperature inside a home to drop drastically when the weather is cold. Common places for drafts to enter a home is underneath doors and around windows, including between window panes and the frame. A simple towel or blanket at the foot of a door can prevent a draft from coming through and keep the house warm. Tape along the edge of a window pane can also prevent drafts from entering through the glass.

Moving furniture away from radiators can help circulate heat flow throughout the home. A couch right in front of a radiator or a fireplace is an inefficient way of retaining heat. Keeping radiators free of obstructions is the best way to ensure the heat dissipates as much as possible and keeps the house warm. Tiled floors and uninsulated floorboards can also make a room freezing. Placing a rug over the walking area can act as a heat trap and reduce the cold feeling.

While sunlight is a helpful and free way to keep a house warm during the day, as soon as the sun goes down it is best to close the curtains to stop heat from getting lost. If curtains are thin, a blanket over a curtain rail can improve insulation. Closing doors to create a "pocket of heat" in a room or to lessen the amount of space needed to heat also helps reduce the amount energy needed.

Heating water – set your water heater to 120 degrees, take 5 minutes showers and install low-flow showerheads and faucets. This helps reduce not only your gas usage but your water bill as well.

Cooking and baking – try not to preheat your oven, place lids tightly on pans when cooking, keep the oven door closed while baking and more! The oven can play a huge factor in your energy bill if you use it often!

On top of all these steps, enrolling in a Fixed Rate Plan through an energy provider can play a HUGE role in keeping your energy bill at a reasonable value, which Santanna Energy Services provides.
