Keeping Your Home Warm and Your Family Safe This Winter
The cost of heating your home this winter will rise to close to 70% of your home’s energy consumption. It’s a fact. Your energy bill will skyrocket as soon as the chilly winds begin to blow.
Apart from the danger of going bankrupt over our energy bills, there’s another danger we put ourselves into. When we crank up the heat higher than normal, we increase the risk of house fires.
Here’s how you can stay safe:
1. INSTALL A THERMOSTAT FOR OUTDOOR HEATING
One of the most dangerous conditions in winter is the slippery ice right outside our homes. Slip and fall accidents are plenty during the snowy season, and sometimes these accidents get quite serious. If you live in a region where outdoor heating is necessary, installing a thermostat is equally important. Running the outdoor heating system throughout the day could be ridiculously expensive. Program the thermometer to run the system at appropriate times and to provide safety and cost-efficiency.
2. INSTALL A SMART THERMOSTAT TO ENSURE STABILITY
We either wake up to an extremely cold room during the night or to a highly heated one. Extreme temperatures are not safe for our health nor good for our finances. Installing Smart Programmable Room Thermostats allow you to set a schedule for your personal comfort. And when heating becomes necessary, a Smart thermostat will help you program different time slots for the heat to turn off and on automatically.
3. NEVER TURN OFF THE HEAT COMPLETELY
If you don’t have a thermostat installed in your home, you must occasionally turn off the heating entirely. This could be a significant reason behind your hefty energy bill. Reheating the system consumes loads of energy, significantly adding to your bill. A Smart Programmable Thermostat will keep your home warm and cozy throughout the day.
4. WHERE IS YOUR FURNITURE
Nothing beats the feeling of warmth and coziness when you recline on your favorite sofa right in front of the radiator. However, sofas tend to absorb all the heat that is meant for the rest of the house. As a result, you increase the temperature and significantly raise your energy bill.
Move your furniture away from in front of the radiator and enjoy warmth all over the house. Keeping your home and family safe in the winter is necessary, but being careless can pose a danger. Be Smart, Stay Safe. Follow the above tips and invest in a Smart Programmable Home Thermostat.
