ENERGY SAVING TIPS

* Since up to 25 per cent of heat loss is through windows, plastic window covers can help reduce drafts. They can be purchased at most hardware stores.
* Keep window curtains open during the day to allow solar energy into your home.
* Put removable, temporary caulking on the inside of your windows that you can peel off in the spring.
* Reduce the temperature on your thermostat when you’re not at home and overnight. Many new thermostats can be programmed to change the temperature automatically.
* If you have forced air heating in your home, give your furnace a break by having ducts cleaned regularly and checked for leaks. Leaky air ducts can cause distribution losses of up to 30 per cent.
