WINTER1

Winter costs don’t just include holiday gifts, travel and new winter coats for the family. It also includes energy loss in your home, which can cost a ton. Here’s a few easy ways to save money and keep your family from freezing at the same time.

  1. Run your fans in reverse. Most ceiling fans come with a switch at the base of the fan that allows clockwise circulation makes your room warmer as air pooled near the ceiling is circulated back into the living space.
  2. Watch the thermostat. Remembering to turn the temperature down a few degrees could mean big savings – According to Popular Mechanics, “for every degree you lower the thermostat during heating season, you’ll save between 1 and 3% of your heating bill.” You can also buy programmable thermostats for as low as $50.
  3. Cuddle up. Putting on extra layers instead of upping the temp in your house can save you money and body heat. A light long sleeve shirt adds about 2 degrees while a thick sweater adds 4. Turn that into savings and warmth!
  4. Give drafts the boot. Roll up a towel and place it at the bottom of your door, or Google how to make a DIY “draft snake.” A great way to save money and entertain the kids on those long snow days!
