It’s midway through this winter, and it’s certainly feeling quite arctic. Cars are groaning to a start, pipes are starting to freeze, sidewalks are turning into rinks and so on. Then one day when you pick up your mail your heating bill comes, and your heart almost stops looking at the amount due. How can one place rack up so much in heat? But then you remember, the temperature outside is flirting with below zero and your windows are starting to frost over.
Check out these couple of tips on how to save yourself some money when it comes to your heating bill this winter:
1. Lower your thermostat either when you’re gone for the day at work or during the night.
2. Invest in drapes or blinds that will further bock the cold air from sneaking in. You want to keep the cold air out and the warm air in.
3. Call a local plumber or someone who can check the outside of your house for leaks or openings. If you house feels drafty at all, chances are you’re wasting heat.
4. Space heaters sometimes take up more energy than your normal heating unit. Sometimes, blankets are the best bet.
Keep warm this winter, friends!
