Even though it’s chilly outside, there are a few things we can do to reduce our energy usage while keeping our feet nice and toasty!
- Lower your thermostats in the evening and while you’re out of the house. Just by turning it down a couple of degrees, you can reduce heating costs by about 5%.
- Bundle on the sweaters! By wearing a few more shirts and a pair of cozy slippers, you can keep your thermostat lower all the time.
- Make the most use out of your windows. In the daytime, open your blinds to allow the sunlight to warm your house naturally. At night, be sure to close them to maximize their insulating ability.
