• Check your furnace's filter each month and change when dirty.
  • Clean area around the furnace by removing trash and anything that can catch fire; you will not only keep your family safe, but it will also improve the airflow to the furnace.
  • Have your furnace inspected and tuned-up by a professional once a year.
  • Save as much as $25 a month by turning your thermostat back 5°F.
  • Install an automatic thermostat that allows you to reduce the temperature after you go to bed, and have it turn back up before you wake - then down again after leaving for work.
  • Make sure all heating registers, air suppliers and return vents are unblocked.
  • Don't use your stove to heat your home. Not only is it expensive, but it doesn't heat well and is extremely dangerous.
