If you're not one of those people who are excited to break out their sweaters and coats, then perhaps this will convince you:
Lowering the temperature 3-5 degrees Fahrenheit can save you up to 20% on heating costs!
If you're still not convinced enough to don a fashionable sweater this season, then consider some other alternatives to staying warm:
- Increasing the insulation in the walls, ceilings, and between the floors
- Making sure all the windows are tightly sealed and don't leak in air
- Turning down the temperature of your water heater to the warm water setting, and the lowest one when you're away
- Replacing your water heater (newer ones are significantly more energy efficient)
