Frosty temperatures can take a bite out of your winter budget. Depending on your home, some of these suggestions will affect your heating costs more than others, but none of them can hurt.
Save your dollars for something more fun than the utility bill.
4 Put an insulating blanket around your hot water heater. This is an easy way to keep the water heater from doing double duty in cold basements and garages.
5 Keep blankets on the couch. Cuddling up for some TV or movie time is a great winter activity, but chilling out alone can get chilly. Blankets make everything better.
6 Reverse the direction of the ceiling fans. During cold weather they should turn clockwise to push warm air down.
