I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s starting to get cold at night! Here are a couple of simple tips that can save you money this winter:
Each degree the thermostat is set below 70 degrees knocks 2 to 3 percent off your heating bill. A well insulated home with caulk and weather stripping makes it possible to lower the thermostat without the home becoming too cold.
During the winter daylight hours, open all drapes & window coverings on the side of your home that is receiving the most sunlight. When the sun goes down, close the window coverings. This is a free way to help heat your home during the winter!
