recommendations to save

energy and lower heating

weather-resistant plastic

sheathing.

proper insulation.

thermostats with a

programmable model and

lower temperatures while at

6. Open shades and drapes

whent he sun is out to help

warm your home, and close

them when the sun goes

down to reduce heat loss.

7. Eliminate gaps between

your door and threshhold by

adding a seal to the bottom of

the door.

8. Close your kitchen vents,

fireplace damper, and closet

doors, and remove or cover air

conditioners when not in use.
