Take a few tips from us to save energy and money

Saving energy and money in your home does not have to be hard. Take some time now, before heating season begins, to improve the energy-efficiency in your home with a few low- or no-cost steps.

  • Lower the thermostat by 10° F at night or when you are away for at least eight hours and you can potentially save 10 percent on your space heating costs.
  • Reduce your water heater temperature to no higher than 120° F. This setting not only improves your energy efficiency, but it’s also comfortable and can help prevent scalding. Water heating accounts for about 18 percent of an average home’s energy use. Lowering water heater temperature to the recommended setting can help you save energy and money.
  • Run your ceiling fan in reverse mode on a low-setting in the winter as this helps move warm air that rises down and spreads it more evenly throughout a room.
  • Prevent air leaks when you spend a few minutes to check and repair all cracked, separated or missing exterior caulking and weatherstripping, especially around windows and entry doors. Be sure to also check roof and soffit vents for possible air-flow obstructions.
  • Buy foam gaskets and install them behind your electrical outlets to help seal air leaks.
  • Lock your windows. Tightening this seal helps keep your home air-tight and helps prevent warm air from leaking outside.
  • Clean or change your furnace filter regularly. A dirty furnace filter slows down air flow and makes your system work harder than it needs to, which costs more money and wastes energy.
