Reducing your thermostat setting can substantially lower your heating costs. Putting on those extra layers will help you stay comfortable while saving on your heating bill.
- Close off vents and doors to rooms and areas of the house that are unused. Make sure there are no exposed pipes in those areas that could freeze.
