Winter 2020 is in full swing, and even though we’ve not yet seen an extended stretch of bitter cold so far this season, you can bet it’s coming sooner or later; when it does, you’ll have the heating bills to show for it.
The good news is you can take a bite out of those bills by making some simple changes at home. Here are three of the best ways to cut heating costs this winter:
Start by keeping your home temperature at a moderate 68 degrees when people are home; this will give you a great balance of comfort and economy. Then, when no one is home or during sleeping hours, drop temperatures by eight to ten degrees: this could save you 10 percent or more on your heating bill, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
Want to make managing your home climate even easier? Install a smart thermostat, which takes temperature control to the next level by letting you manage your heating and cooling systems from any location using your smartphone and a Wi-Fi connection.
