And while you're at it, make sure to follow these tips to help cut down on your energy costs this winter.

  • Lower your thermostat in the winter. Even by lowering it by one degree, you can reduce your energy costs by 3%.
  • Use a humidifier to keep moisture in the air. This can help you feel comfortable even with a lower set thermostat.
  • Seal off unused rooms and keep the doors closed.
  • Weatherstrip and caulk all windows and doors. I've even done this in my basement and it has helped my heating tremendously. 
  • Make sure the water heater is set to no higher that 125 degrees.
  • Measure your attic insulation. If it is less than 7 inches, you should consider upgrading.
Using these tips can help cut down on your energy costs tremendously this winter. So keep these in mind before winter officially starts!

  6. Great tips. Our house isn't that old so we are lucky to have been able to build in a time of energy saving products. Especially in our cold climate up here in Montana.

  11. My mom is all about keeping the thermostat really low.... like 64* most days and around 62* at night. I think it is frigid when I visit but it certainly does cut down on her heating bill. - Katy

  15. I like the idea of lowering the water heater temp. Nobody uses it hotter than that anyway, and why heat it if you don't use it! Great tips!
