Take it Down a Notch

It may be chilly outside, but it doesn't need to be sweltering inside. During the winter, try lowering your thermostat from 70 degrees F to 67 degrees F. You can reduce your heating energy consumption by up to 5 percent for every degree you lower your thermostat below 70 degrees F. Plus, you'll save up to $125 a year on home heating costs.
