Winter Energy Savings Tips

As the temperature outside drops, enjoy savings and the warmth and coziness inside your home with these tips.

Lower Your Thermostat in the Winter
Keep the thermostat at the lowest temperature that’s comfortable: 68° F or lower, and the fan set to “auto”. Save even more, when you lower the temperature overnight or when no one is home.

Close Fireplace Dampers when the Fireplace is not being used
Stop warm air from escaping through the chimney.

Move Furniture and Drapes Away From Heat Sources
Keep vents open and unblocked. Open window coverings for natural light and warmth.

Use Ceiling Fans
Run ceiling fans counter-clockwise to circulate warm air.

Replace Old Windows
Replace drafty windows with new, energy-efficient windows or seal up leaky windows and doors (check electrical outlets and light switches for drafts too).

Change Heater Filters
Change your filter once a month.
