Cut Your Heating Bill this Winter
What's the best way to lower your heating bills this winter? Stop trying to squeeze a few more years out of that old, inefficient heating system you've been living with.

In today's economy, where heating fuel prices are the highest they've ever been, sticking with an older, repair-prone, energy inefficient furnace is "penny-wise and pound foolish." From basic oil or gas-burning furnaces to high-tech geothermal heat, newer systems are more efficient, consuming less fuel to heat your house - and saving you real money in fuel and repair costs.

The average household spends $1,900 a year on energy bills, according to the E.P.A. If you're spending significantly more than that, it could be because your heating system is old and inefficient. Replacing your old system can reduce heating and repair costs to the extent that you'll recoup your investment in just a few years.

Plus, a newer system can greatly enhance the comfort level in your home be reducing or eliminating humidity or dust problems, reducing furnace noise and more evenly heating your home.

Now that you've made the "pound smart" decision to replace your old, inefficient heating system, do undo all your cost-saving work by hiring an overpriced contractor to install the new one. You'll want to find a contractor who can expertly dismantle the old system and install the new one at a fair price.

Fortunately, it's easy to find a reputable contractor at QualitySmith.com. Just log onto the Web site, enter your contact information and let them know you're looking for a heating quote.
