Anyhow, if your heater is working properly, you’re probably curios how you can use it without wasting energy. That’s why we have collected five tips for that will help keeping your apartment warm and cosy.


1.     Don’t Turn the Heater Thermostat Up to The Highest Temperature


When coming home to a cold apartment, it seems tempting to just turn up the thermostat to the highest level. You might think that will heat the apartment quicker. However, that is not true. The only thing that will go up quicker by doing that is your fuel bill.


2.     Adjust the Temperature of The Heater


Many people think that it makes sense to keep the temperature at a steady level throughout the day. But, if you want to save energy, it is recommended to adjust the temperature. For example: You could turn it down in the evening before you go to bed.


3.     Don’t Close the Vent


You would assume that you will use less energy when closing vents in unused rooms. Unfortunately, that is not true. As your heater will produce as much air as before, it is more effective to keep the vents open.


4.     The Heat Should be Able to Flow Freely


Most people know that they shouldn’t cover their heater to keep them working effectively. But even big furniture such as a sofa can stop the heat from flowing around freely. Consider rearranging some furniture to ensure a warm apartment and an efficient heating system.


5.     Lower the Temperature


The most effective way to save energy is to get used to a lower temperature at your home. If you are used to temperatures between 60°F and 70°F, you can save 2 % of your electricity costs with every degree you turn the temperature down. So, we consider that is worth putting on an extra sweater, right?
