Low or No-Cost Cold Weather Energy Saving Tips

Living room windows

Staying warm as the cooler weather approaches in the autumn (or staying cool as the hot summer days linger around), can result in expensive utility bills. Many believe that energy efficiency also comes with a significant cost, but there are a vast amount of low or no-cost energy saving tips that you can implement today!

1. Take Advantage of the Sun

On cool days, open the curtains on your south-facing windows to let the sunlight naturally heat the room. Then, block out the cold evening air by closing the curtains when the sun has gone away for the day. Conversely, if you are dealing with an Indian Summer, block out the hot sun during the day.

2. Cover Drafty Windows

It’s not always possible to replace old, drafty windows, but that doesn’t mean you are out of options. At your local hardware store, you can purchase clear plastic film designed to block the draft. Then, close your curtains to battle any residual cool air.

3. Adjust The Thermostat

By adjusting your thermostat back 10-15 degrees when you are out of the house or sleeping, you can enjoy major savings. Homes that adjust the thermostat back for eight hours a day can save up to 10% each year.

4. Find and Fill Leaks

By finding and sealing air leaks or gaps around piping, chimneys, recessed lighting in insulated ceilings, and unfinished spaces behind cupboards, you reduce the amount of outside air that gets into your home. Additionally, weatherstripping along doors and windows can prevent your warm air from escaping into the cold.

5. Fireplace Fixes

Chimneys are terrible at letting outside air in and treated air out. Close the flue damper when your fireplace is not in use. When you do use the fireplace, lower the thermostat to 50-55 degrees, and close any doors leading into the room, if possible.

6. Maintain Your HVAC System

A properly maintained HVAC system will run more efficiently and save you money. Contact Just Right Services today at (949) 245-6320 to schedule your fall maintenance and get trusted advice about your HVAC system.

Very responsive – called to request service on a Monday morning and repairman arrived after lunch the next day. Service was excellent. Technician was professional and knowledgeable. Every step of the repair process was explained. AC unit is now working efficiently. Recommendations were made but did not push us to purchase other services or parts. Would 100% recommend!


Great HVAC Repair company! They answered when I called this morning and in the middle of Summer had a repair person out this afternoon. Our repair guy Robert May was incredibly nice, professional, and did a great job of explaining what was wrong as he fixed it. Now our AC is working perfectly!


Just Right was able to come within a few hours- helpful when the A/C is broken and its 90 degrees. The team were really nice, courteous guys who explained everything to me and provided an estimate to sign before proceeding with the work. Our A/C was up and running within an hour at a reasonable price. Thank you!
