The fall season can be costly. With the holidays around the corner and colder temperatures rolling in, what better time than the fall to save money on your monthly energy bill? Here are a few tips to help save on your energy bill during the fall months.
Reduce AC Usage

Maintain Your Fireplace
Over time, your fireplace accumulates soot and develops cracks. Cleaning out your fireplace and caulking the cracks with help to reduce your energy bill by locking in the warmth and keeping out the cold.
Replace Your Bedding
This tip might have you thinking, “Well, duh!” However, it is actually a step many of us forget to do come winter. Replacing your current bedding with something warmer, or just adding a couple blankets, will prevent you from continuously turning up your thermostat throughout the night.
Have an Energy-Efficient Holiday
A major reason for the increased cost of energy bills in the fall is due to holiday lighting. Use light emitting diode (LED) lights this holiday season reduce the cost of your energy bill.
Replace HVAC Filters
This tip is key yet somehow easiest to forget. The air filters of your home are responsible for collecting all the unwanted pollen, dust and dander. If the filters are old and clogged, that means your HVAC unit will have to work in overdrive to pump air throughout the home.
