Ways to keep your home energy efficient in cold weather

It looks like we will be having frigid weather for the first couple of weeks in the New Year. But a drop in temperatures doesn’t necessarily mean the increase in your energy bill.

You actually can save money on your energy consumption just following a few simple steps.Ways to keep your home energy efficient in cold weather

1.      Adjust a temperature

Set up your thermostat as low as is comfortable when you are home and awake

When you are asleep or out of the house, turn your thermostat back 10° to 15° for eight hours and save around 10% a year on your heating and cooling bills.

2.      Check a furnace filter

Check your furnace filter monthly during the winter months and replace it if it’s dirty. Keeping your furnace properly maintained will reduce energy consumption and could save you up to 5 percent on your heating costs. Install a furnace filter alarm on your furnace. This will let you know when it is time to change a filter.

3.      Find and seal the leaks

Caulk leaks around windows and doors. Look for places where you have pipes, or vents that go through the wall, ceiling or floor.

4.      Reduce hot water temperature

Turn down the temperature of your water heater to the warm setting (120°F). You will not only save energy, but you will also avoid scalding your hands.

5.      Upgrade your old gas appliances with  ENERGY STAR

Consider replacing your old gas appliances with energy efficient water heater or furnace.

6.      Avoid heating unused rooms by closing doors and warm air supply registers
