Help Lower My Heating Bills, Please!

Here are some steps to reducing your overall energy usage, thus lowering costs, and making everyone happy.

  • Replace or clean your filters regularly
  • Use your ceiling fans to optimize air flow
  • Seal any gaps or air leaks to weatherize your home
  • Keep your fireplace chimney damper closed when not in use
  • Set thermostat to 68 degrees during the day and back to 60 degrees at night-each degree can save up to 5 percent of your energy bill
  • Install a programmable thermostat
  • Open blinds and drapes during the day to let the sun warm your rooms
  • Keep hot water use to a minimum and shorten showers (2/3 of your water heating costs go to showers)
  • Install high efficiency appliances, doors, and windows
