winter house

Use these simple tips to reduce energy costs during winter:

  1. Keep the cold out by insulating your walls and attics.
  2. Caulk and weather-strip doors and windows.
  3. Reduce chilly drafts by covering windows from the inside with plastic.
  4. Keep cold air returns and vents uncovered and fireplace dampers closed when not in use.
  5. Make sure your thermostat is set to a temperature that suits your comfort and your wallet. Dropping the temperature by 10 to 15 degrees when you’re out of the house (for eight hours) can save 5 to 15 percent on your heating costs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
