Save energy on heating and cooling

5-20% of heating costs will be decreased if you watch your thermostat. Set it lower than 55 degrees or just turn it off when you leave home and during the day. At night keep it at a steady 55 degrees or lower and wear warm clothing. That should take care of some of your heating costs. As far as cooling goes, use ceiling fans instead of air conditioners. The blowing air could make you feel 5 degrees cooler without running a air conditioning system. Try these simple tips and the costs and energy use in your house should go down :)
