Looking for more ways to cut costs when it comes to energy usage in winter? Remember these 3 tips —
1. Turn down the heat as much as possible. This is especially recommended when you will be away from home for an extended period of time – or just for eight hours while you are at work. The less you run your heater, the more money you will save on your electricity bill.
2. Lower the temperature on your water heater. No one needs scalding hot water than will just cause your bills to go up. Setting the heater to 100-110 degrees is much more cost effective, and it will still give you water hot enough for a nice shower or to thoroughly wash your dishes and laundry.
3. Check all doors and windows for cracks. These areas can cause your warm heat to leak out of your home, costing you more money to keep everyone toasty. Expanding foam or caulk can be used to seal any leaks you may find.
None of these tricks take that long to do and could allow you to save enough money for more holiday shopping! In fact, it takes less than 10 minutes to find solutions that fit your needs using ChooseEnergy.com – so be sure to fit them into your shopping this year.
