A cold house isn’t something a homeowner wants to deal with when winter arrives. Unfortunately, there can be a price to pay for a warm home—literally. Running a furnace means higher energy bills. If the bills appear excessively high, though, try and find the culprit. A few adjustments could bring your fuel costs down.
The Heating System Isn’t Working Right
Sometimes, the furnace needs a tune-up and some possible fixes to run more efficiently. If the furnace isn’t working the way it should, then your heating bills could trend upward. Imagine if the fan wasn’t running the right way. Hot air might not be able to circulate. So, to reach the temperature chosen on the thermostat, the heater must work harder.
Similar problems could arise when the filter is dirty. Maybe calling in a professional for a tune-up and inspection makes sense.

No Support From Another Source
When the furnace is tasked with heating an entire home with no assistance, then it has to run and run until reaching the designated temperature. If you have a fireplace in a room or an electric space heater, the added warmth could take some of the burdens off the furnace. The assistance might be minor, but it helps.
The Temperature Is Too High
If you want to live in a super-hot house, expect to pay the price. Is cranking up the thermostat necessary, though? You might find it just as comfortable to lower the temperature a few degrees. Doing so could save you some money.
Insulation makes it easier to keep a home warm. Weak insulation leads to escaping hot air, which is costly and wasteful. Perform an energy audit to see if you can improve insulation in some way.
