Winter is approaching!

With the onset of winter near, I'd like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to put on a sweater or wrap a blanket around before cranking up the heater!

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)
Anyone have any other alternatives? Leave a comment!
