What can I do to conserve energy and save money?

We recommend you do the following:

  • Lower your heat thermostat by 3° F to 5° F (health permitting).
  • Open drapes and shades during the day and close them during the night to limit the amount of heat that escapes.
  • Install or upgrade insulation in your attic and/or walls.
  • Caulk and weather strip windows and doors.


Should you be away from your home for several days or weeks.

  • Set your gas water heater to pilot or low
  • If your water heater is in a heated area, turn it off at the breaker; otherwise lower the temperature setting.
  • Turn heaters off for pools and spas and reduce the filter to minimum.
  • Turn your heat thermostat to 55° F.
