Don’t make your home a freezer

If you really want to save money on your energy bills, only set your thermostat to a temperature that is cool, but not freezing. There is no need for you to make your home cold enough to hang raw meat.

Don’t forget about sealing all ducts, windows, and doors

It goes without saying that you are wasting money if cool air is escaping outside. Therefore, you need to examine all of your ducts, along with your doors and windows in an effort to make sure they are sealed and no air is escaping from them. Better yet, update your doors and windows to more efficient materials.
