While you could turn down your heat and add more layers of clothes, this is anything but comfortable. Instead, here are some top tips for saving money:

·      Replace worn weather-stripping around doors and windows.

·      Adjust door thresholds to keep the cold air on the outside.

·      Plug holes in exterior walls, such as where pipes enter.

·      Use a portable heater, when necessary, instead of cranking your furnace.

·      Insulate your attic.

Along with the above tips, all of which can help cut your home’s heating expense this winter, consider this: it may be time for replacement windows.

This sounds like a big job, but it’s actually quite simple when you hire a professional. With new windows, you won’t have to concern yourself with cold air penetrating your warm home.

Winter weather is quickly moving into the area, so now’s the time to think long and hard about how to cut your heating bill. With the tips above, you won’t have any trouble making headway this winter!
