Winter Energy Saving Tips

  •  Set your ceiling fan to turn clockwise. 
  • Open curtains during the day to let in natural heat, then close them at night to keep heat in. 
  • Replace dirty air filters in your heating system.
  • Put on an air conditioner cover during the winter to reduce drafts.
  • Wear slippers and light sweaters so you can lower the temperature a few degrees.
  • Cover up with a blanket when sitting still at home.
