Fall into energy savings


    As scarves and light jackets leave closets this fall, be ready to cut the chill and your energy bill with these seasonal tips:

    * Set your thermostat no higher than 68 degrees and be sure to lower the temperature when you go to bed or are not at home. This saves money and keeps you warm.

    * During the day, open shades and curtains to allow solar heating. Close them at night to retain the day’s heat.

    * Check your home’s weather stripping for air leaks around doors, windows, baseboards, and wherever pipes, wires, and vents enter the house. Make sure the warm air you paid for won’t escape.

    * Have your heating system serviced by contractor who has a certification through the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) program, and replace furnace filters at least once every three months. Clean filters once a month during the heating season to keep the system at peak performance.
