Energy Saving Tips

ENERGY SAVING TIPS

  • Set your thermostat between 66-68 degrees during the heating season.
  • Install a programmable thermostat. Set the temperature back 10 degrees for eight hours every night during the winter months, and lower your heating bills by 10%.
  • Replace or clean your furnace filters monthly.
  • Check the duct work for dirt streaks, especially seams.  These indicate air leaks that should be sealed.
  • Caulk and weather strip any cracks around doors and windows.
  • Insulate any ducts or pipes that travel through unheated spaces.
  • Remove or cover window air conditioners during the winter.
  • Lower the setting of your hot water heater to 120 degrees F.
  • Open shades during winter days for passive solar heat and close them at night.
