Now that summer is over and fall is in full-swing, it’s time for homeowners to turn their attention to what’s next – cooler weather. Standard heating systems are great, of course, but they’ll also cost you a pretty penny. To help decrease your costs, we’ve compiled some great heating alternatives to lower your energy usage.

Install a Radiant Floor System
Surely you’ve experienced chilly floors during the colder months of the year. Not only will a radiant floor system keep your feet warm, it’ll heat up your entire home more efficiently. The system ishould be installed by an HVAC technician.
Use a Fireplace or Space Heater
Fireplaces and space heaters are great when you only need to heat up certain sections of your home instead of the whole thing. While space heaters are typically thought of when you need to move heat around, electric fireplaces are portable, too.
Slip on a Sweater
If your home isn’t too cold at times, perhaps you can stay away from heating options altogether. Simply grab a sweater and slip it on. Sometimes, the simplest ways are the most efficient.
