In our last post IDT Energy discussed ways to get the heat into your house in a cost saving manner, such as exposing your home to daytime sunshine, lowering your thermostat and installing a programmable thermostat.

Here are some ideas on how to keep the heat you’ve paid so dearly for to stay inside where it belongs:

  • When is the last time you checked the insulation in your attic? How about your ceilings, exterior walls, basement walls, crawl spaces and floors? Make sure the insulation is adequate for the climate that you live in. New York can have extremely harsh winters, and good insulation can make a huge difference in your heating costs.
  • Check for air leaks around windows and doors, then use caulk and weather stripping to seal them.
  • Be sure to replace the filters on your furnace regularly to keep the warm air flowing into your house efficiently.
  • IDT Energy wishes you and your family a wonderful warm winter in New York.
