The crisp air has arrived as winter is approaching quickly, which means we are all going to be looking for ways to keep warm. There are ways to stay warm and cozy inside of your home that won’t cost you a mint this winter if you follow a few energy conserving tips such as the ones below.

  • Insulation can do wonders for your home this winter. You may think that your home is already properly insulated but it may be that a few areas are not insulated as well as they should be. Check for cracks in door frames, window panes and other areas where warm air may escape and cold air may be able to come inside. You may want to add some more insulation to pipes that are already insulated if the current insulation has become worn out or is thin.
  • Clean your heat filters so that your system runs as efficiently as possible. This will help to cut down on your heating bill.
  • You may not be aware that you can hire professionals to come to your home to check it for energy efficiency. This is what is known as an energy audit. The professionals check your home for energy loss and areas in which your energy efficiency can be improved. Many times this service is free of charge.
  • Don’t wait for the middle of the winter to stock up on items such as ice, shovels, blowers and the like. These items will go up in price during the winter months, so be sure to purchase them on the off season or as soon as they are available for purchase in your local store.
  • If you can stand to lower your thermostat a bit you stand to save a good deal on your electric bill. Wrap up in blankets and or snuggle with your loved ones during the coldest part of the winter. This will not only save you some money but it may also help you and your family to grow closer together and have a time of bonding.

Stay warm this winter and save on your electric bills at the same time by putting all or a few of these energy saving tips to good use. There is no reason why you can’t stay warm all the while saving a bit of cash. Who knows, you may end up with so much savings that you have extra money to spend over the Christmas holidays!
