Here are some tips to get you started. Visit our blog to learn more ways to save energy and lower your natural gas bill.
Set your thermostat at 68 degrees or lower in the winter and 78 or higher in the summer. Each degree higher or lower can significantly impact your energy costs.
A thermostat that can automatically lower and raise the temperature throughout the day will help you save energy costs when you're not at home.
Have heaters and air conditioners inspected and cleaned by a professional each year.
If you have a forced-air furnace, check your filters every month and replace them when they're dirty.
A crack just 1/16th of an inch around an average window lets as much air escape as a three-inch square hole in your wall.
Places to caulk
Get insulation at a minimum of R-38 (12-14 inches). When you install a new roof, consider adding ENERGY STAR® certified shingles.
Put draft guards at the bottom of doors that go outside.
Energy-efficient refrigerators, dishwashers, and washing machines can reduce operating costs over the course of time.
Also consider a gas range with a pilotless ignition system that uses less gas, and a clothes dryer that shuts off automatically when your clothes are dry.
