There are a lot of homes that don’t have the most cost-effective insulation in their ceilings however this is the area of the home that you lose the most heat and because you have to keep the heat turned up to compensate for the different heat exchange you end up spending way more than you should. Although it is costly to begin with you will start to see you’re saving every month whether you’ve got the heat or air conditioning on. In the long run it will pay for itself in a matter of months because you’re saving on average 30-50% on your energy bill.

One of the cheapest ways is to make sure you switch the direction your fan turns to push the heat back down on you since it likes to rise. Another way is by having your heater tuned up and the duct cleaned. This makes sure you’re running at optimal level.
