There are a number of ways to keep the cost of your heating down during the long winter months in Illinois. Armbrust Plumbing & Heating Solutions, a leading provider of heating and plumbing services in St. Charles, IL, as well as Glen Ellyn, Carol Stream, and Wheaton, offers tips to customers on keeping utility costs affordable in winter. You don’t want to add insult to injury by getting an enormous utility bill in the middle of a harsh grim winter.

One of the easiest ways to save is to put on a sweater and lower your thermostat. When you lower the thermostat 10-15 degrees for 8 hours a day, your bill will significantly decrease. This is easiest to do when you aren’t home or are asleep. The higher the degree count, the higher the costs.

It is also recommended that you replace your old thermostat with a programmable one, which will change the temperature to match your needs. You can even make changes to the temperature from a smart app on your phone.  At the same time you can make it a point to clean the returns and vents in your home. When dust and debris are removed, your heat flows better.
