The leaves are coloured, the wind is cool, the days are getting shorter … no doubt, Fall has indeed arrived in Quebec! Discover our tips to keep your home warm for less.

Opt for a smart thermostat

… And you can also save up to 10% on your energy consumption, compared to using a conventional thermostat. Plus, Énergir offers up to $100 in subsidies when you buy a smart thermostat.

Use less hot water

You can enjoy a nice hot shower, and lower your energy consumption at the same time! For instance, with every five-minute shower using an efficient showerhead, you reduce your hot water consumption by about eighteen litres or 12% of a forty-gallon hot water tank.

Ensure your natural gas appliances are properly maintained

Annual maintenance performed by a qualified professional will help maintain your appliances’ efficiency and prevent energy loss. Here are a few steps you can do yourself:

Hot air heater

  • Wash or change the air filters during the cold season.
  • Clean the air vents at the front of the unit to prevent dust from clogging the burner.
  • Use latex sealants to seal hot air leaks at duct joints.

Radiators

  • Bleed the radiators at the beginning of the season to eliminate air build-up in the system.
  • Vacuum the radiator fins regularly for better air circulation.

Hot water tank

  • Make sure the temperature is at its optimal level, sixty degrees celsius.
  • Insulate the hot water pipes, especially those located in unheated areas.
  • Install flow reducers.

With these tips, you have everything in hand to save money during the cold season, without sacrificing the comfort of your home!
