The Common Sense of Lowering Your Gas Bill
On this page you’ll find some common sense solutions to lowering your gas bill. In addition to these simple steps, if you own a gas furnace, water heater, or boiler that is over 10 years old, you owe it to yourself to investigate a new, high-efficiency model.
Why? We’re not just trying to make a sale. The technology of energy efficiency has increased dramatically over the last decade, allowing modern units to offer significant savings over their lifetimes. Additionally, federal tax rebates are available to help with the purchase.
Now may be the time to make a wise investment in your family’s comfort and safety, not to mention lowering those gas bills forever.

Here are some ideas you can use to help control your usage
- Keep thermostats for the furnace and water heater at the lowest comfortable setting.
- Be sure your humidifier is cleaned and working properly. (A higher humidity level offers greater comfort at a lower setting)
- Clean furnace filters monthly and have the furnace inspected to ensure efficient operations.
- Use weather stripping around doors and windows.
- Make sure your HVAC ductwork isn’t leaking and is insulated in unconditioned areas.
- Your attic should have R-19 insulation or better to prevent heat loss.
- If you furnace is older than 10 years, consider upgrading to a higher efficiency furnace.
- Fireplaces should have the doors and damper closed when not in use.
- Keep heat registers and cold air returns clean and clear of furniture and draperies.
