Here are some tips to help save you even more money:

Save On Your Home Utilities This Winter

Dress for the weather

Wearing warmer clothes inside your home can help you feel comfortable at a lower temperature, which means you can turn down the heat and save money. Invest in a cozy sweater home outfit to help you feel comfortable without turning up the heat.


Keep your windows and doors sealed

One of the biggest causes of heat loss in homes is poor insulation. Make sure your windows and doors are properly sealed and insulated to keep the heat in and the cold out. You can also invest in window coverings to help insulate your windows and keep the heat in.


Cook at home

Cooking at home is not only cheaper than eating out, but it can also help you save money on your utility bill. Cooking generates heat, so turning on the oven or stove can help warm up your home and lower your heating bill.


Close off unused rooms

If you have rooms in your home that are not being used, close the doors to those rooms. This will help to contain the heat in the rooms that you are using and save you money.


Use space heaters more often

If you have a room that you use more often than others, consider using a space heater in that room instead of heating your entire home. Space heaters are an efficient way to heat a single room and can save you money on your overall energy bill. This is especially valuable advice for anyone that works from home.
