Winter Energy Saving Tips

  • Keep doors and windows closed during cold weather.
  • Open blinds during daylight hours to warm your home naturally.
  • Setting your thermostat to 68 degrees when your home is occupied and to 55 degrees when not occupied could reduce your monthly gas usage.
  • When gathered in one room, consider using a space heater to moderate the temperature and increase comfort while avoiding the use of central heating.
  • Set your water heater temperature at 120 degrees or lower, this will reduce the energy needed to maintain temperature.
  • Reheat leftovers using a microwave instead of a standard oven.
