Winter Energy Saving Tips

1. Sunshine is your friend.
Sunshine is your friend. Take advantage of sunny days to naturally heat your home by opening curtains and blinds during the day. Use the solar load to reduce your heating bills.

2. Stay cozy inside.
Stay cozy inside. Layer up in your coziest sweaters and slippers, and don’t forget your blankets too. You can save 5% for every degree you reduce your thermostat between 60-70 degrees.

3. Space heaters can help.
Space heaters can help. Use a space heater in high-use areas like the family room and bedrooms instead of wasting money heating every room.

4. Eliminate drafts.
Eliminate drafts. Cold winter air can seep in through doors, windows and even through electrical outlets. Install weather stripping and proper insulation to help keep the cold at bay.

5. Replace old bulbs with LEDs.
Replace old bulbs with LEDs. LED bulbs use 75% less energy than traditional light bulbs. Make sure to use LED holiday lights as well.
