1. Choose High-Efficiency Furnace
Oh no, you got it wrong. We aren't suggesting you to purchase a new Furnace when you have your Furnace working well.

High-Efficiency Furnaces though a bit costly save you money in long run by saving on energy bills.

Since it is your Furnace which is responsible for creating the indoor warmth for you, it is important to check it's parts primarily the Filters. Dirty filters hinder the proper functioning of a Furnace. Check the condition of the filters and clean or replace them. Filters are available in cheap prices so if you're willing to save yourself the headache of washing them, replace them with newer ones.
3. Humidity Level - It's Important!
Better the humidity, greater the warmth. To maintain a well moderate indoor temperature, check the indoor humidity level. If the level is above or below the required level, tune it by using quality Humidifiers. The better the humidity, the greater the warmth, the lesser the use of appliances and the lesser the bills.
Using the zoning technology, only the rooms where the heat is required can be warmed and for the rest, the ducts are closed to avoid energy loss. You can enjoy better warmth in intense cold temperature by using Zoning thermostat technology.
The non-insulated basement and attic cause up to 30% of heat loss. It is, therefore, important to go for insulation before the Winter begins. Have your home already insulated? Check it again for possible fixations.
