But be sure to let in the light during the daytime these rays from the sun will help to heat your home.

3) Do Not Let Your Heat Escape Unnecessarily. 

Keep all your doors and windows shut when the heat is on.
If you have a fireplace that you are not using, make sure the flue is closed and any glass doors are in place to reduce any heat loss.
In addition any ventilation fans, turn off when they are not needed.

4) Lower your thermostat. 

You will not notice a huge difference if you turn it down just a few degrees. This move that can shave 5% to 10% off your energy bill. Also turn down the heat whenever you leave your home for several hours.

5) Trap heat that’s there anyway. 

There are so many activities you do around the house that generate heat, example cooking a meal, example taking a shower. Now when you take a shower, keep the bathroom door open so steam spreads to other rooms, plus do not turn the ventilation fan on as this will rapidly remove the warm air you’re hoping to keep around.

6) Learn to Love Your Socks.
