As winter begins to approach, it’s important to think ahead so that you’ll save money when heating your home. There are some very simple ways to save on the fall and winter energy costs, whether you use IDT Energy or another energy supplier.

First, keep those shades and curtains open during the day to utilize the sun’s energy as much as possible. But, make sure to close them at night to retain the heat.  Reduce any air leads that you have, and cut as much as 10% off of your monthly energy bill.  The most common place that you’ll find air leaks include floors, walls, ceilings, ducts, fireplaces, doors, fans, windows and such.

Walk around the house and make sure that your radiators and heating vents aren’t blocked by any furniture or drapes.  Keep the radiators, registers and baseboard heaters free of dirt and dust as well. And close those vents and doors in rooms you aren’t using.
