Save energy and money as the weather cools down

  • Don't block your radiators or heating vents with furniture or draperies. Keep your radiators, registers and baseboard heaters dirt and dust free.


  • Have your heating system serviced and check to see if furnace filters need replacing.


  • Weatherize your home by caulking and weather-stripping around doors and windows.

It’s chilly outside, but these energy-saving tips will keep you feeling warm and cozy.

  • Close storm windows – Make sure storm windows are closed completely so no air leaks in or out.

  • Weatherize your doors and windows – A few inexpensive tubes of caulk and rolls of weather-stripping can help reduce heating bills and increase comfort.

  • Maintain or replace your heating system – Schedule yearly maintenance with a qualified contractor and replace furnace filters monthly or according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

  • Close the chimney damper – For homes with fireplaces, it’s important to close the damper when not in use. This prevents cold air from entering the house through the chimney.
