The second thing you should do is Let there be light.
I live in the Southeast and if the truth be told I spend way more money on my air conditioning than I do on my heating. Even so, I do recognize the fact that millions of people are looking for ways to save money once it is time to turn the furnace on. In my neck of the woods, most people have electric heaters that are part of the central heating and cooling system. All that is involved for people around here is to Simply change the switch on their thermostat. Moving the thermostat switch from cooling to heating is really all we have to do once cold weather arrives. Other people, though, have much more efficient types of furnaces and often the air conditioning and the heating are not part of 1 central unit. Although these types of furnaces are generally more efficient than Central Heating, because of the extreme cold and other places and the long time that winter is upon us, we are still looking for ways to save money when it comes to the heating bill each winter. The first thing You should do is Seal of any leaks you might have. Get some Caulking and go around the windows and the doors. This will help keep the cold air out and your heater will not have to work as hard. The second thing you should do is Let there be light. Open your curtains. Let the sun shine naturally as a heater so that your air is already as warm as it can be when the heater engages. The third thing you should do is Wear warm clothes even around the house And put an extra blanket on the bed. This may seem obvious, but lots of folks prefer to walk around in shorts or just a t-shirt oh, and that is just putting extra pressure on your heating system.
