Use a Space Heater

Heating empty rooms is a waste of money and energy. So instead of heating your entire house with a central furnace, use two or three space heaters to heat just the rooms that are occupied. Using space heaters can help save natural gas, heating oil, or electricity depending on your home--all of which are associated with greenhouse gas emissions. Your wallet will thank you too: this simple shift can save you up to $235 per year.
