With the winter months upon us, cranking up the heat may seem like the obvious option to keep warm.

  • Replace air filters as needed.
  • Keep window blinds and curtains closed during the night to keep from feeling cold from windows. Open them during the day to let the sun warmth in.
  • Caulk around windows or doors. Anywhere that air leaks out can cause drafts and poor air retention.
  • Taking shorter, less hot showers will save on your water heating bill.
  • Purchase a space heater and humidifier. Space heaters will warm an especially cold area, and humidifiers add water to dry air. Humid air feels warmer.
  • Keep furniture away from vents. The furniture will absorb heat from the vents and it will take longer to heat your home.

  • Buy a water-saving shower head. Less powerful streams save water and still generate enough power to have an enjoyable shower.

Just these few changes around your home will have you saving money each month.
