Even Scottsdale residents get chilly during the wintertime and find ourselves turning up our heating systems for cozy relief. When frosty temps invade your homey space, there is nothing quite like sweet heat to warm up your bones. But budget-conscious residents need to be careful with that dial.

At Larson Air Conditioning, we’re homeowners, too. And we understand the need to stick to a budget. So, when we uncover simple tricks to keep heating costs down while also making your home cozier, we say: Why not?

So, you want to stay safe and warm? No problem. In honor of Valentine’s Day, we are sharing seven snuggly tips that will make your heart sing. These simple ideas will save you money and keep you cozy as you cuddle up with your sweetheart this month.

1. Schedule a home energy audit.

The best way to determine where your home is losing energy is with a professional home energy audit. Our pros will conduct a full home assessment, identify your home energy inefficiencies and recommend solutions that will work—guaranteed.

2. Use your fireplace.

If you have a wood-burning fireplace, why not use it? Fireplaces are a great way to not only heat your home, but help save on heating costs each winter.

3. Reverse those ceiling fans.

If your home is filled with ceiling fans, try reversing the blades in the winter. This helps push hot air from the ceiling closer to the floor.

4. Seal doors and windows.

Once again, a professional home energy audit will help pinpoint if drafty windows or unsealed doors are where you’re losing the most heat. For a quick fix, you can always place draft dodgers under doors or plastic film over windows.

5. Hang heavy, insulated curtains.

Invest in some insulated curtains to help trap heat inside. If you get direct sunlight in a particular room, open blinds during the day to allow the sun to heat up your room.

6. Use area rugs.

Is your home filled with hardwood or tile floors? These look great but they aren’t always good at keeping things warm. Throw down area rugs to help trap in some extra warmth.

7. Move furniture.

Make sure your furniture isn’t covering vents and blocking warm air from flowing freely.
