• Ensure that your attic is well insulated. Weather-strip and caulk to stop leaks around windows, doors, exhaust fans and other places where pipes or wires pass through walls.
  • Replace incandescent or halogen light bulbs with LEDs. Remember, the sun goes down earlier in the evening during the winter months, so you will be using more energy for lighting during this season. LEDs use less energy than incandescent, halogen, and CFL light bulbs.
  • Install a water heater insulation blanket to reduce heat loss from your water heater.
  • Remember to replace your furnace filter monthly to keep it operating efficiently.
  • If you have ceiling fans, remember to change them to reverse spin to distribute the warm air in the room evenly.
  • Consider installing a programmable thermostat to save energy during the heating season.
