Extended cold weather means more than breaking ice for livestock and bundling up the kids to go to school--it also means an increase in electric usage. Use these tips to reduce your usage and your bill.
*Dress warmly indoors and lower your thermostat. Lowering the indoor temperature as little as 2 degrees can reduce your energy bill by 4%.
*Throw an extra blanket on the bed.
*Close curtains when the sun goes down to retain heat.
*Change filters on your heat system.
*Ensure heat vents are not blocked.
*Clear plastic sheeting on windows helps minimize drafts.
*Set your water heater between 110 and 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
*Avoid using space heaters. Read the next article.
