Tip 1 lower your thermostat

Tip #1- Lower Your Thermostat

  • Keep your thermostat at a comfortable setting.

  • Turn your Thermostat down at night.

  • If you are going to be away for several days, turn the thermostat to a lower setting, but not to “off.”

  • Better yet, buy a programmable Thermostat and preset a week’s worth of temperatures. It costs $50 - $150 and it will pay for itself within a year.

  • You can save up to three percent for each degree you lower your thermostat temperature.


Tip 2 check your water heater

Tip #2 – Check Your Water Heater

  • After heating and cooling, your water heater is the next largest energy user in your home.

  • Use a thermometer to check your hot water temperature at the faucet closest to the water heater. If it’s over 120, consider reducing the thermostat setting.

  • Insulate your water heater with at least R-6 insulation. You can save enough money in energy bills to pay back the cost of materials within months and then keep on saving.


Tip 3 seal weather strip

Tip #3 – Seal & Weather-Strip

  • Seal cracks or crevices where two different building materials meet and weather-strip around all doors and windows.

  • It’s also a good idea to weather-strip between heated and unheated areas such as garages, basements and attics.


Tip 4 check filter unblock and clean vents

Tip #4 – Check Filter, Unblock and Clean Vents

  • Inspect filters monthly and replace as needed.

  • Make sure heating registers, vents and returns are not blocked by draperies or furniture.

  • These vents should also be cleaned regularly with a vacuum or a broom.


Tip 5 let the sun shine in

Tip #5 – Let the Sun Shine In

  • Take advantage of natural solar heat.

  • On sunny days, leave the draperies open to allow the sun’s rays to warm your house.

  • Close draperies on cloudy days and at night.
