Dirty Filters

If you use a forced air distribution based heating system, such as a furnace, then it is absolutely necessary that you change your air filter regularly. The frequency with which you'll have to do so may vary, but you should be checking in on it once a month. When your air filter is too dirty, it can increase the airflow resistance that your system encounters. When that happens, your system will have to work harder than should be necessary in order to distribute heated air throughout your home. This will drive up your energy costs.

Ductwork Issues

Again, if you heat your home with a furnace or with a heat pump, it is necessary that your ductwork is in fine working condition. If not, it may leak, allowing air to escape the system before it makes its way to its intended destination. When this happens, your system will have to work overtime in order to evenly heat your home, leaving you to pay higher energy bills than you should encounter.
