Heat Your CTBest Apartment Without Raising the Electric Bill

Heat Your CTBest ApartmentThe Connecticut winter season is here and you’re probably searching for ways to keep your apartment warm without cranking up the thermostat. How can you stay cozy and warm throughout a chilly winter without driving up the electric bill? From what temperature to set the thermostat at to buying rugs for your floors, here are tips on heating your Branford, Norwalk and Stamford apartment without breaking the bank.

Use Your Thermostat Correctly

The best way to use your thermostat is to not turn off your heater during the day while you’re at school or work.  Experts suggest setting the thermostat at 68 degrees during the winter season because it will cost twice as much to keep adjusting the temperature than letting the normal cycle run at a lower degree.

Add Accessories to the Apartment

Rugs, humidifiers, window blinds and shades, there are lots of accessories that can be added to your apartment to help save on the electric bill. When it comes to heating your home, use the sun to your advantage. When the sun rises, raise the blinds of the windows and when the sun sets, close the blinds to lock in the heat. You can also invest in accessories such as a humidifier and rugs to help your home stay warm. During the winter, humidifiers help keep moisture in the air, which keeps the air warmer. Rugs with higher stitch counts can also help keep rooms warmer and insulated.

Bundle Up

Who doesn’t want more cozy blankets and fluffy pillows in the chilly months? Before turning the heat up, try wearing thicker sweaters or adding more blankets to the couch and bed. Look through your closet and put on the flannel and fuzzy socks! There are tons of innovative ways to stay warm rather than raising the electric bill by turning up the heat.

Luckily, a good, steaming meal can warm you up to your core and give you the motivation to carry on through the winter, many layers and all.
