Save energy for what matters most

This time of year comes with temperature swings, and as North Carolinians, we’re used to that. But did you know, the greater the difference between the outdoor temperature and your indoor thermostat setting, the harder your heating and cooling systems have to work to close the gap?

This causes energy use to go up. See why cold weather makes a big impact on home energy use, and find ways to save energy and money, this season and all year long.

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?

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.
