Smart Ideas for Saving Energy This Winter

As the temperature outside drops, your home’s energy bills might start to rise. Keeping your home warm and comfortable can be quite expensive, but if you incorporate some of these smart tactics, you can keep your energy costs lower this winter.

Here are a few simple tips to save energy:

  • Turn down the water heater a bit—When it’s cold outside, it’s natural for you to stay in the warm shower longer than usual. Who can blame you? It’s tough to get out of the nice, hot shower when it’s freezing outside! What you can do to save a little money is turn down your water heater a bit. The difference will be barely noticeable in most cases, and it will save you some money.
  • Get energy efficient light bulbs—Winter brings short days and long nights with it. That means you’ll be using your lights longer. So, you should switch out your light bulbs with Energy Star rated bulbs. The savings will add up quickly.
  • Use a programmable thermostat—A programmable thermostat will allow you to control the heating in your home at various times throughout the day. That way, when no one is home, the heater isn’t cranking and wasting energy.
