Tips to stay comfortable while also saving money on your heating bills this winter


Stepping outside on this blustery winter morning, it’s clear that winter is here. While the idea of being warm and cozy indoors is delightful – but the utility bills that come with that could give anyone the shivers. With costs rising everywhere, it can be alarming that a significant chunk of your monthly bills come from heating your home in the winter. If you’re anything like me, you’ll want to know where to save those pennies wherever you can.


Here are a few simple tips to stay comfortable while also saving money on your heating bills this winter:

  1. Make sure you’re changing your furnace filters regularly

stay comfortable while saving money on your heating billsYour furnace will not work as effectively as it can with a dirty filter and the harder your furnace is working, the higher your bills will be. Aim to change your filters every one to three months.


  1. Turn down your thermostat

This might seem obvious, but even a few degrees will make a difference on your heating bill. Particularly before bedtime or hours where no one is home, it is worthwhile to turn down that temperature. There are programmable thermostats available so you don’t have to heat your home while you’re away, but can still arrive to a nice toasty house!


  1. Reverse your ceiling fans

We all know that heat rises. Keeping your fan running clockwise will push warm air back down into the room.


  1. Take advantage of sunlight

While we don’t get as much sun in the winter, make sure to open your curtains or blinds and let the sun shine in! This can also be a nice change from the dark days of winter. Make sure to close them at night though, to help retain the heat collected during the day. (Even switching to thicker, more insulating drapes during the winter can make a difference!)


  1. Bundle up

Make sure you’re dressing in layers during the winter. Get out those sweaters, long sleeve shirts, leggings, warm socks and slippers! Dressing warmer can have a huge effect on how warm you feel without having to reach for that thermostat. Also, grab those blankets! There’s not much better than reading a book under a cozy fleece blanket (or watching the newest Netflix, if that’s your thing).


  1. Sip on something hot

I like an iced coffee as much as the next person, but it’s not doing anything to help me stay warm during the winter. Consider trading in the cold beverages for a hot tea, coffee, or hot chocolate! Yum!

A bowl of homemade soup is also a tasty (and nutritious) option to help stay warm during the winter months.


  1. Unblock your vents

There’s no point in paying to heat the back of that couch or the bottom of your bed. Try to unblock any vents whenever possible, even if it means rearranging some furniture.


  1. Consider replacing an old furnace

While this may seem like a daunting investment, if your furnace is particularly old, it may be worthwhile to upgrade to a more efficient model, and you will save money in the long run.

Our water tank quit on us Saturday night. Contacted Lynn’s the next day for a quote and they scheduled us in first thing Monday morning. Service was quick, efficient and price is very competitive, would highly recommend.

If you need a company for any plumbing needs please make sure to use Lynne‘s HVAC Winnipeg. Scott was out today to clean our sewer line and he was very professional & had everything back working for us again. It seems tree roots were the cause of our troubles. I would rate Scott and the company both five stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

From the moment I met Josh I knew I could trust this company. He was very patient and explained everything easily. The team came on time. They worked so hard to get my new AC on my old furnace. It was a challenging job but they stayed positive and never discouraged me. I was so confident they will do a great job and they did not disappoint. They cleaned up everything and it looked perfect. I am now enjoying my cool home. Thank you so much and I feel like I found a family. ❤️

After a really bad experience with a competitor I turned to Lynn’s. Scott was early, clean and professional. He took of his shoes, prepared the area where we has going to work and made sure my carpet didnt get any more dirty then it was (competitor had soiled it). The jobs was tougher than initially thought, but Scott kept working at it and didn’t give up and finally found a solution. I felt the costs was proportionate and I would highly recommend Lynn’s Plumbing and Scott in particular. Give others a pass!

Sucks to be without AC when it is 30 degrees out! Luckily Lynn’s helped us repair our air conditioner unit within hours of it breaking down.
