How to Combat Higher Prices and Colder Temps

Home » Blog » How to Combat Higher Prices and Colder Temps

Consumers are being hit with a double whammy this winter. Prices for natural gas are up as much as 13% and electricity is up about 2%. Heating fuel is about the same, but is still one of the most expensive fuels. As these prices increase, so has fuel consumption due to a colder than average winter. One way to conserve on fuel costs is by changing the way you dress. By choosing clothing made in warmth retention fabrics such as fleece, Polartec™, cashmere, and wool you can lower your thermostat and still stay warm. Also lower your thermostat when you sleep and put an extra blanket on your bed. If there is no one home during the day, lowering the temperature will add even more savings. Lowering your thermostat just one degree will save about 10% on your heating bill.
