Winter Home Prep
- Set your thermostat a couple degrees lower when you're out of the house. Your utility bill adjusts about 3% for each degree you change your house's temperature
- Use kitchen and bathroom fans only when you need them since they remove warm air from the house
- Keep blinds and curtains open on south-facing windows so that sunlight can come in and help heat your home
As you can see, these simple steps can help save on utilities when you need it most. To see the full list, you can check out their article here.
