• Insulate: Proper insulation is probably the single most important step you can take in energy conservation. 
  • Apply Caulking: Caulking around windows and door frames will seal cracks and keep cold air out.
  • Make Sure Furnace Filters are Clean: Dirty filters cause poor heat circulation and wasted energy.
  • Let the Sun Help Heat Your Home: Open your blinds during the day and let in warm sunlight. Close them at night to keep in the heat.
  • Close the Outside Door: Just a few seconds with the door open can let in a lot of cold air.
  • Check Your Furniture: Move chairs and sofas away from colder outside walls. Make sure furniture, draperies and rugs aren’t blocking heat flow into your room.
