How do I keep the heating cost low in winter?
April 5, 2007 2:57pm CST
Last winter was harsh and our heating cost sky-rocketted. It was very unusual. The gas prices are rising and we are being forced to pay dearly. If only we could preserve the indoor heat, then the bill would not be that high. Is there any way we can save energy during the long winter months? We don't open the doors and windows unless absolutely necessary during winter, but still the cold manages somehow to get inside. Please suggest. Thanks in advance.

If you own your home, you might want to think about getting insulated windows and doors. It sounds like you don't have them by what you are saying about the cold still getting inside your home. Other tricks include space heaters that use up less energy and only heat specific places you are in. This might not heat the whole house, but it could work to keep you warm. Down comforters are another good trick. They may cost you a bit at the store, but their effect is invaluable.
