With Christmas comes presents, and the inevitable cutting costs.
One of the most obvious and easiest cut is your heating bill, so let's learn how to save some money on our heating bill!
All of these points won't mean anything if you don't take the time to properly insulate your home.
What sense does it make to pump all of this heat into your home if it's just going to escape due to poor insulation?
You might as well turn the heat on high and open your front door in the middle of December.
Air can become very dry in the wintertime due to the lack of fresh air circulation.
Adding a humidifier can increase the moisture in the air, which not only feels warmer but also holds heat better.
A cheaper and more natural alternative to a humidifier is simply adding a few house plants. Not many people know that they are natural humidifiers.
The US Department of Energy has stated multiple times that you can save 10% per year on your heating bills by turning down the thermostat by 10-15 degrees.
It makes sense to turn down the thermostat at night seeing as all you're really doing is sleeping.
Just add a few more heavy blankets, and the only difference you'll notice is the price of your heating bill.
