Save $$ on your heating bill this winter!

Now that the temperatures are dropping quickly, you are likely to find yourself using more energy to heat your home – which will result in much higher energy bills this season. Here are a few easy steps you can take to reduce winter energy costs this year:

  • Turn down your thermostat to 68 degrees, or even a bit lower, if you can handle it. Every degree lowered in the 60-70 degree range can save up to 5 percent in heating costs.
  • Turn your heating down a bit more whenever you’re out of the house, and especially if you’re going away for a few days.
  • Reduce your hot water temperature, so that appliances such as your dishwasher and dishwashing machine will use less heat.
  • Seal up any air leaks in your home, such as around windows, doors, and pipes, to keep in more warm air.
  • Lastly, as chilly as it may sound, try to get used to cooler showers, which can save you plenty of money in the long-run.
