Fall/Winter Energy Saving Tips, Pt 1

The following tips will save you energy and help your budget as the weather cools down.

  • Set your thermostat no higher than 68 degrees when you are home and lower the temperature when you go to bed or when you are not at home. This will ensure optimal home heating and save energy.
  • For every degree you lower your thermostat you save about 2 percent off your heating bill.
  • Cut annual heating bills by as much as 10 percent a year by turning your thermostat back 10 to 15 percent for eight hours a day.
  • Weatherize your home by caulking and weather-stripping all doors and windows. Also use locks on your windows to make them tighter and draft resistant.
  • Turn your water heater down to 120 degrees Fahrenheit to save money on your energy bill. If you have children in the house, this is also a safety measure
  • Install water-flow restrictors in showerheads and faucets.
  • Place a sheet of aluminum foil between the radiator and the wall to reflect heat back into the room.
