Home Heating Tips
  • Heating is the single biggest energy use in homes. A well maintained heating system
    will hold down fuel costs and provide reliable comfort.
  • Thermostats should be located on an inside wall or where they will not be subject to
    draft or heat.
  • Use door snakes to reduce drafts.
  • Block off your open fireplace when not in use.
  • Capture as much sunlight as possible.
  • Close curtains before dark to keep heat in.
  • Use and extra blanket if a bit cold.
  • The many small openings in a home can add up to big heat losses. Caulking and 
    weather stripping cracks in walls and floors, windows and doors will save fuel and
  • Use ceiling fans to distribute the heat throughout your home.
  • Proper insulation in walls, ceilings and floors also significantly reduces the loss of
    heat to the outdoors. Insulation will pay for itself in fuel cost savings and home comfort.
  • Storm windows and doors are big energy and money savers. They can reduce heating
    costs by as much as 5% by preventing warm air from escaping to the outside. Double
    glazed and thermo pane windows can minimize heat escape.
