Energy Saving Tips from Ilenna
- Seal cracks around windows, doors and electrical sockets: Cracks and spcaes allow drafts through and thus heat loss. Caulk or weather drtip around drafty doors and windows, use storm window or new low "E' argon filled glass windows. This could reduce your heating gas usage.
- Reduce the temperature in your home by 3 degrees celcius:this could reduce gas use by 6 percent
- Clean or replace your natural gas furnace filter every 3 months; clean filters will help the furnace run at full efficiency and reduce gas usage by 1.5%.
