Energy Saving Tips

With winter, comes the cooler weather. Please see some energy (and money) saving tips below:

  • Try installing quilted curtains over drafty windows to help keep the heat inside
  • Use weather stripping, window film and calking to control heat loss around doors, windows and baseboards
  • Opening blinds and curtains during the day and closing them at night allows you to warm up your home and keep the heat in
  • When you are home and awake, set your thermostat as low as feels comfortable
  • Schedule service on your heating system
  • Replace your heater’s filter as often as recommended by the manufacturer
  • If you have working fireplaces, you should get your chimneys cleaned by an experienced chimney sweep as it will help decrease the risk of fire from buildup or blockages
