To make sure your heat stays indoors. check your insulation.., especially the weafherstripping around doors and windows And, see~o it that the fireplace damper is'closed when not in use. Other hints to assure even more efficient heat- ing this winter: 2. Check your heating equipment thoroughly. Units or systems that are not o~ erating properly will use more electricity because they have to work harder to heat & Check filters now. Then check them peri- odically during the days ahead. Clogged fil- ters also cause a system to work harder and use more electricity 4. Keep. drapes, shades and curtains clo'sed during the evening. 5. Keep doors and win- dows~closed. 6, Storm doors and windows will reduce your heat loss during the winter. 7. Provide at least 6 inches of insulation in attic. 8. Pick a comfortable ther- mostat setting, then leave it alone. Juggling the thermostat up and down won't heat the house any faster. It only makes your system work longer and harder than necessary.
