MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The bitter cold can make your energy bill more costly, but We Energies has some simple steps you can take to save money while keeping your family warm.
- Dial it down: Lower your thermostat when you’re asleep or away. Even a few degrees can make a big difference.
- Seal cracks and gaps: Don’t let cold air creep in through poorly sealed windows or doors. Use caulk or weatherstripping to stay comfortable.
- Replace your furnace filter: Dirty filters reduce airflow and make your furnace use more energy. Replace it monthly during the heating season, or buy a high-efficiency filter than can last several months.
- Let the sunshine in: Open your shades, blinds and drapes during the day to let in the warmth of the sun.
