• Change your furnace filter monthly.
  • Inspect your heating systems regularly.
  • Add caulk and weather stripping around windows, doors and other openings.
  • Invest in a furnace thermostat timer that lowers your heat when you’re not home. Turning your furnace down for eight hours a day can reduce your annual heating bill by as much as 10% each year.
  • Extend the life of your water heater and increase its energy efficiency by draining and cleaning it bi-annually.
  • Save more on your hot water bill by turning down your water heater from the standard 120 degrees to 115 degrees. Every 10 degree reduction in water temperature results in about an 8% savings in energy use.
  • Install flow restricting shower heads. They can reduce your energy usage by up to 50% without affecting the shower pressure.
  • Convert to a propane water heater. They cost up to one-third less to operate and recover hot water twice as fast as electric heaters.
  • Repair leaky faucets. A leak that fills a coffee cup in 10 minutes will waste 3,200 gallons of water a year.
  • If you’re thinking about buying a fireplace, consider one that is fueled by propane. Propane fireplaces are known to spread heat more evenly and burn more efficiently than wood-burning fireplaces.
