Warm Winter Days = Energy-Saving Opportunity

January 27, 2012 at 1:41 pm Leave a comment

60° days have been common this winter—it even reached an astounding 70° yesterday!  Take this opportunity to spend some much-needed time outside AND turn your thermostat down!  One way to take advantage of the warmer weather is to open those windows or keep the shades open on the south and west sides of your home to let the house warm up.  Then close the house up tight in the early evening to keep all that warmth in.  Even with lows in the 30s you can minimize the amount your furnace needs to kick on at night with these simple steps.  Enjoy!
