Control your energy costs in the bitter cold

The wind chills may be scary, but your energy bill doesn’t have to be. Here are some simple steps you can take to save money while keeping your family warm.
  •  Dial it down: Lower your thermostat when you’re asleep or away. Even a few degrees can make a big difference.
  • Seal cracks and gaps: Don’t let cold air creep in through poorly sealed windows or doors. Use caulk or weatherstripping to stay comfortable.
  •  Replace your furnace filter: Dirty filters reduce airflow and make your furnace use more energy. Replace it monthly during the heating season, or buy a high-efficiency filter than can last several months.
  • Let the sunshine in: Open your shades, blinds and drapes during the day to let in the warmth of the sun.

You don’t have to sacrifice your comfort to lower your energy bill. For more energy-saving tips, visit our website.
