It’s easy to save natural resources and money in the winter. To reduce your energy use and keep money in your pocket during the colder months:
- Set your thermostat to a lower temperature at night and when you’re not in the house.
- Put on warmer clothes and add additional blankets to your bed before turning up the heat.
- Make sure your home’s windows and other gaps are sealed properly. Your local hardware store will have inexpensive products including rope caulk and heat-shrunkable plastic sheeting that can seal up your cracks easily.
