3 Tips to Save on Your Energy Bill This Winter
The U.S. Energy Administration (EIA) predicts that home heating bills are likely to be slightly higher this winter. The increase in heating bills is due to higher prices in heating fuels.
At Red Energy, we care about our customers and want to ensure that we provide the necessary information to prepare you for the projected higher fuel costs this year. Here are a few ways you can take more control over your energy consumption to potentially lower your bill this winter:
1. Control the temperature
Set your thermostat to 68°F when you’re at home, and lower the temperature at night or when you’re away. The largest portion of your energy bill this winter will be based on how you choose to heat your apartment.
2. Let the sunshine in
Open draperies and shades to allow more sunlight and heat in during the day. Close them at night to conserve heat.
3. Use exhaust fans sparingly
Use bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans sparingly. They can quickly pull warm air from your home.
