If you are chilled to the bone, or someone in your family is always complaining about how cold it is, then it’s time to find a way to remedy that! No one should be cold in their own home – not when it’s your main refuge for warmth and comfort during a Minnesota winter. Here are 10 quick home heating tips from the Stay Comfy specialists to bring you some relief!
Don’t Fall For Myths
There are a lot of home heating myths out there, but you don’t have to fall for them. One of the bigger myths is that you can turn your thermostat higher to heat your home up faster. Unfortunately, that’s not true says our expert, Keith Hill, technical support manager at Minnesota Air.
“Turning the heat up higher on the thermostat will not heat up your home faster. Set the thermostat where you want the temperature, and let it do its job,” he says.
Know Your Thermostat
It’s the little device that’s partly responsible for your comfort so get to know it! Newer digital models can be programmed for different temperatures at different times of day, and some even send you reminders.
“Many homeowners are not aware of the features that are included,” says Keith. “Many have filter and humidifier reminders. Some will tell you what the humidity level is in the home and may be able to control a humidifier or a dehumidifier.”
