As the temperatures drop, your utility bills may go up this winter. Here are some tips to save on energy bills this season. One of the easiest ways to save is to accessorize rather than turn up the heat. Put on a sweater, add blankets to the couch, or put a rug on the floor to keep things warm. At night, lower the thermostat and add blankets and comforters to the beds in your home. If you have areas in your home that are seldom used, seal the vents off. Consider using a space heater in smaller spaces.
When using the central heat in your home, make sure that your furnace is properly maintained. Remember to change the filter once a month. Make sure that the heat is not escaping. Check windows and doorways first and add weatherstripping in needed areas.
Taking the time to prepare your home for the colder weather will make it snug and cozy. Enjoy snuggling up on the couch with your blankets and loved ones while avoiding winter’s harsh temperatures!
