Northwest Indiana winters are COLD! And since everyone’s looking for ways to save money, here are some simple, quick ways that you’ll be able to save time and energy!
#3- Weatherstrip your doors. Hold a piece of paper between the door and the frame If you can shut the door on the piece of paper and pull it out without tearing it, you need to weatherstrip around your door.
#4- Lower your thermostat. It sounds like a no-brainer, but think of it like this: for every one degree you lower your thermostat, you’ll save about 2% on your heating bill.
#5- Reverse your ceiling fans and set them on low. This can lower your energy usage by up to 15% by pushing the warm air that’s trapped up at the ceiling all around the room! (In the winter, your ceiling fan should be set to rotate clockwise.)
