The more energy people save, the longer reserves will last. Saving energy can also result in lower utility bills. Some things that everyone can do to save energy in the winter months include:
- Changing furnace filters in hot air systems once a month or more often as needed.
- Making sure supply and return vents, radiators and baseboard heating units remain clear of obstructions and are located to allow for air to flow freely in and out.
- During cooler months, keep windows on the south side of the house open to the sunlight. Lifting shades and drapes on these windows will keep the house warmer.
- Closing drapes and shades at night.
For more information on things that you can do to save energy, including having regular inspections, contact your NPI professional.
