  Tips on Conserving Heat During the Winter
  • Seal all cracks inside between molding, drywall around the electrical outlets.
  • Seal all cracks on the outside of the house as well
  • Make sure doors and windows are sealed well and if not add weather stripping
  • Door sweeps are also a good alternative for drafty doors
  • Your attic should be insulated properly as well as the basement under the first floor
  • Know the “R” value of the area where you live
  • If you are replacing windows or doors use low “E” glass
  • Seal doors and windows tightly using weather stripping.
  • A door sweep will eliminate air escaping underneath the door.
  • Insulate attics and basement ceilings to keep heat in the living space of your home.   (Don't insulate a crawl space if exposed to moisture or the outdoors.)
  • Close off vents to rooms not being used.
  • Draw curtains at night to keep heat from escaping.
  • Replace furnace filters regularly so the furnace doesn't have to work as hard.
  • Set your thermostat on 68 degrees in the day and 55 when sleeping.
  • If replacing your windows and doors, buy a product with the Energy Star Label on it.
  • Low-E Glass is a coating that will reflect infrared light keeping your living space warmer in the winter; cooler in the summer. It will also help to NOT fade your fabrics of your furniture.
