Fore Heating Repair or Maintenance Contact BCS Heating and Cooling in Prescott.During the winter months our utilities often get more expensive as we try to keep our Prescott homes comfortable. BCS Heating and Cooling would like to offer are some tips to help you save energy and money while still being comfortable during the cold weather.

Solar - Take advantage of this free heat source. During the day, open the curtains on your south facing windows to allow the sun to warm your home. Make sure to close the curtains at night to reduce the chill you may feel from cold windows.

Windows - If you have drafty windows, you ma want to cover them with a heavy-duty clear plastic to stop the cold air from seeping through from outside. You may also want to look at tight fitting, thermal blocking window coverings.

Air leaks - When you feel a cold draft, don’t just bump up the heater. Take the time to find where the draft is coming from. You may need new weatherstripping on the door. You may need to insulate around the area where the water pipes come into the house. By taking the time to discover where the cold draft is coming from and taking care of it, you will be saving energy and be more comfortable this winter.

Maintain your heating system - Make sure your furnace has a clean filter. Make sure the vents are not clogged up with accumulated dust. Make sure the air registers are not blocked. By maintaining your heating unit properly, it will run more efficiently and take less energy to keep your home comfortable.

Water heater - Turn down the temperature on your water heater to 120 degrees. You’ll not only save energy, but you may reduce the risk of scalding your hands!

Lower your lighting costs - If you haven’t already done so, you may want to change out those old-fashioned light bulbs with the new LED bulbs. You can get the same light while using less electricity and they have a much longer life-span so you have to change them less often.

If your heating system is not keeping you warm this winter or making strange noisy or smells “funky”, give BCS Heating and Cooling a call at 928-445-9700 today. Their technicians specialize in making your home a better place to live.
