Lower Your Thermostat By A Few Degrees

According to the Sleep Foundation, “The best bedroom temperature for sleep is approximately 65 degrees Fahrenheit.” What could be better than a sound night’s sleep and lowering your energy use? Consider setting timers to turn off devices that you don’t use while you’re dreaming.

Make Your Home Airtight

Another easy way to save energy is to seal air leaks. Check your window and door seals, and consider replacing weather stripping if you can see or feel gaps. Check around plumbing pipes in wall-mounted cabinets on exterior walls for gaps that could let in cold air. Fill any holes or gaps with spray foam insulation.
