How to: Conserve Heat this Winter

The time of year has come to turn those thermostats up due to the dropping temperature. If you are like me, I dread seeing the electricity bill come in the mail. Heating your home in the winter is not cheap. However, I did a little digging and found a few ways to cut down that bill.


Here are a few tips to keep your home warm:

• Consider purchasing a programmable thermostat.

• This automatically turns the heat down for you when you are at work or sleeping.

• Make sure there is no furniture in front of vents that would block heat from circulating.

• You can purchase plastic film to cover your windows. This film helps cold air from entering your home if you have low quality windows.

• Use weather strips on windows and doors.

• Older homes can benefit from extra insulation in the attic.

• Cover floors with carpeting or rugs to help with heat retention.

• Make sure to turn the thermostat down if you are on vacation. But, not past sixty degrees so the pipes in your home don’t freeze.

• Run ceiling fans in reverse to bring heat down.

• Make sure all curtains and blinds are open during the day to let the sunshine in.

These are just a few easy ideas that will help you save some money this winter. Maybe even use the money you save on a warm beach vacation. I know my mind is already thinking about a sunny spring break vacation.

Happy Wednesday!
