Save energy (and money) this winter...

Winter is here, the Division of Energy and Climate would like to share some cold weather tips to help residents save energy and money:

  • Set your thermostat to 68°F when you are awake and a few degrees lower when you are asleep or away from home. A programmable thermostat can make it easy to automatically set back your temperature based on your schedule.
  • Replace and clean your heating & cooling system air filters for better air quality and air flow. Schedule regular maintenance for your heating equipment this fall.
  • Look for the ENERGY STAR® label on light bulbs, home appliances, electronics, and other products.
  • Reduce air leaks by air sealing window frames, electrical outlets, baseboards, doors, and attics. Weatherizing your windows can reduce drafts and keep warm air in once cold weather arrives.
  • To learn more about these and other energy saving tips, visit the U.S. Department of Energy's website.
