Winterize Your Home

12/5/2018

When the wind turns bitterly cold, take a bite out of your gas bill. Instead of cranking up the heat, try keeping the warmth in by properly winterizing your home. Here are some easy ways:

  • Seal all windows and doors against drafts. According to the US Department of Energy, drafts can waste 5-30% of your energy use.
  • Change your furnace filters once a month.
  • Check your insulation and correct anything that might be inefficient.
  • Replace any old, non-functional windows.
  • If you use a fireplace, consider getting an insert that will direct the heat into your house instead of sending it up the chimney.
