Heating accounts for more than 34% of all annual utility usage, so it makes sense to ensure your heating system is in tiptop shape. One easy thing you can do is to check that your ductwork is as tight as possible and there aren't any leaks. You can fix leaks with simple duct tape or mastic, which can help reduce heating loss and improve your system's efficiency as much as 30%. It will also help deliver warmer air throughout the home, and that combined with a programmable thermostat will save you money and keep you warm all winter long.
