When winter is fast approaching the matter that is constantly bothering you is your future energy bill which is going to make a hole in your pocket. If you know of ways to reduce your heating bill then you will definitely resort to it. Apart from reducing your energy bill you are also contributing to a greener environment. During winter the energy bill will rocket up and the unit will also be put to a lot of pressure that it may even breakdown which will add up to the cost. Simple adjustments can help you reduce the cost of heating. If you direct the sun’s heat inside your house then your heating unit will have to function lesser. If you have a window facing the south then open the curtains or blinds so that the warmth of the sun enter and heats your house at least in the morning and afternoon. When the sun goes cover the windows with blinds or curtains so that the heat doesn’t escape and is trapped inside.
You can keep your bed warm by putting extra layers of blankets on your bed and also cover your sofa with thick, warm blanket. Covering the floor with rugs can keep the floor warm. When you are walking through the rugs you will feel less cold than when you would walk on a tiled floor. If you set your thermostat down after you and your family sleeps you will be able to reduce your energy bill. Once you sleep a slightly reduced temperature will not make you uncomfortable but will only help you reduce your energy bill.
