With some planning, you can cut your heating costs in your Bennington, Vermont area home this winter.
- You can save a bundle by caulking and weather-stripping those doors and windows. Did you know that the average home has enough gapping around windows and doors to equal a three foot hole in the wall? Imagine how much heat can escape through that hole!Â
- Â Turn down the thermostat when you leave and at night. Setting the temperature to 60 degrees during those times could cut 5 to 10% off your bill.Â
- Reverse your ceiling fans to push warm air down from the top of a room.
