Heat Selectively –
To avoid paying for unused heat in rooms that aren’t regularly used, shut the doors and close the vents in those rooms.
Trap the Sunlight –
Open your curtains when you’ve got sunlight exposure, and then close them when the angle of the sun changes. This allows you to trap the solar heat inside your home.
Plug up Holes –
Seal up all holes near windows, doors and the chimney to help keep the heat in and the cold out.
Digitize Your Heating System –
Use a programmable digital thermostat to automatically adjust the temperature in your home according to your family’s schedule and habits.
Maintain Your Heating System –
Check for proper airflow throughout your heating system and clear any blockages that you find.
