While the changing seasons are inevitable, and even enjoyable, there are some good winterizing rules that remain the same each year. Seasonal energy saving tips will help keep costs down, as well. Here are a few suggestions to consider: reducing air leaks could cut 10 percent from an average household’s monthly energy bill. Also use locks on your windows to make them tighter and draft resistant. Insulate or increase the amount of insulation in your attic, basement and outside walls. Covering through-the-wall air conditioners will prevent cold air from leaking into your home. You can also save and cut your annual heating bills by as much as 10 percent a year by turning your thermostat back 10 to 15 percent for eight hours a day. A good rule of thumb is to set your thermostat no higher than 68 degrees when you are home and lower the temperature when you go to bed or when you are not at home. This will ensure optimal home heating and save energy. For every degree you lower your thermostat, you save about two percent off your heating bill.
