Saving the planet and saving money go hand-in-hand when you reduce your home heating bill.

Step 1: Get your furnace tuned up
Get your furnace tuned up before winter sets in. Doing this annually will keep your furnace running efficiently.

Step 2: Install a programmable thermostat
Install a programmable thermostat so you can lower the heat when no one is home and at night while everyone is sleeping.

Tip
Lowering the heat to 72 degrees and putting on a sweater is a carbon-free, money-saving way to stay cozy.

Step 3: Use curtains to regulate heat
Close curtains and quilted blinds at night to help keep heat from escaping through windows. Open them during the day to let in the sun’s warmth.

Step 4: Cover your heating system
Use a boiler blanket and pipe insulation to keep heat inside the heating system where it belongs. Before using a blanket, consult your owner’s manual—make sure the blanket you plan to use is safe for your boiler.

Tip
Ask your gas or electric company if they do free energy audits, in which they appraise each room for its energy efficiency and make cost-cutting recommendations.

Step 5: Look into utility company rebates
Look into your utility company’s efficiency programs. Many will pay for programmable thermostats and some even subsidize roof insulation.

Step 6: Seal cracks
Hold a piece of toilet paper near windows and door frames to check for drafts. Sealing cracks with weather stripping can save big bucks.

Tip
If you improve your home’s energy efficiency by replacing an old boiler, furnace, or water heater, or by investing in storm windows and doors, you’re entitled to an energy tax credit.

Step 7: Fill outdoor cracks
Review the outside of your home for cracks that are draining heat and caulk them.

Step 8: Clean radiators
Keep baseboard heaters and radiators clean and make sure your furniture and curtains are not blocking the vents.

Step 9: Centralize your winter life
Since pioneer times many a family has found warmth by gathering around a stove in winter. If you live in a big house, try sealing off little used rooms and/or an entire wing when the snow flies.

Did You Know?
Lowering your thermostat to 68 degrees while you’re at work can decrease your heating bill by 12 percent.

Tips To Reduce Electricity Consumption of an Air Conditioner

A few Tips to reduce AC electricity consumption:

1) Ideal Temperature

In an air conditioner, higher the temperature that you set, lower is the electricity consumption. We have seen that 25 degree celsius is an ideal temp for both cooling comfort and electricity savings. If you set the temp lesser than 25, then your ac will consume more electricity.
Using ceiling fans helps to regulate the cooling of the ac throughout the room. However, if the roof of your house is directly facing the sun, then avoid using ceiling fans along with air conditioners.

2) Placement of outdoor unit

If the outdoor unit of your air conditioner is installed at a place where it gets a lot of heat from the sun or from other heat emitting appliances, then the cooling of the ac will be reduced. Also make sure that the outdoor unit is not placed in a cluttered space for maximising its output.

3) Insulation

Air conditioners are meant to cool enclosed spaces. So it is very important that the heat entering the room through the walls, ceilings and windows should be minimised. For doing that, you can white-paint the roof of your house, or use thermal insulation for the ceiling. Thermal insulating wallpaper can also be used for the walls of the room. Keeping the doors and windows closed and using curtains will help in insulation.

4) Maintenance

Clean the filters of the ac before start of the season as unclean filters block the air inflow. Also make sure that you don’t miss out on the Annual Maintenance Contract
