As winter continues to bring more snow and temperatures keep dropping, you may be looking for ways to keep warm while saving on utility bills. One of the easiest ways to keep your heating costs under control this winter is to keep your thermostat at 68 degrees or lower. At night or when you are away from home, try turning the thermostat down 5 to 10 degrees for additional savings. You also might consider installing a programmable thermostat you can set to do this automatically. Over the years, there has been concern that it may cost just as much or more to reheat your home to your standard. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, this misconception has been dispelled by years of research and numerous studies. The longer your house remains at the lower temperature setting, the more energy you save.
