Heating projects you can do today:

  • Maintain your current heating system properly: clean registers, baseboards, or indoor units; clean or change filters as needed.
  • Get a home performance assessment.
  • Look at your south walls and the surrounding landscape; consider how you can improve access to winter sun. Remove screens on south-facing windows in winter if possible.
  • Install a programmable thermostat.
  • Start searching for a good HVAC contractor.
  • Turn down your thermostat and wear a sweater.

Heating projects that will take more time:

  • Add windows and thermal mass to improve your passive-solar heating.
  • Upgrade insulation and air sealing.
  • If you have ducts, have them cleaned, sealed, and insulated.
  • Select and install a new high-efficiency heating system.
