- Seal the Draft- According to the Energy Department, drafts can waste 5% to 30% of your energy use. Place a rolled bath towel under a drafty door, or you can purchase a draft guard to place on your door.
- Change Furnace Filters- It is important to replace or clean your furnace filters once a month during the heating season. Dirty filters restrict air flow and increase energy demand.
- Install Storm Windows- Installing a storm door can increase energy efficiency by 45%, by sealing drafts and reducing air flow.
- Water Heater- Turning your water heater down to 120 degrees or lower will reduce your water-heating costs by 6% to 10%.
