3 Important Tips to Keep Your Heating Costs Down this Winter:
1. Make sure your furnace is ready for the cold weather:
Check your filter and replace it if it is dirty.
Make sure the vents in your rooms are not blocked.

3. Keep it cooler at night:
The U.S. Department of Energy says you can save up to 10% on your heating bills per year if you turn your thermostat down 10-15 degrees for eight hours. While you’re sleeping you could be saving!
