If you live in cold weather areas, heating costs can really eat up your budget. Everyone where I live is saying that this winter is going to be a cold one, so I'm looking for ways to save money on our heating bill. Here are a few that I have been able to think of: Close off rooms/areas that are not being used. If no one is in there, there's no need to heat that room/area, right? Close the doors and any heating vents in the room until it is needed. For example, guest rooms don't need to be heated unless you have guests. Make sure you won't lose heat through windows or doorways. Replace weather stripping or sealant on windows and doors to make sure cold air won't get in this winter. You may also want to cover window with plastic sheeting. Put on a sweater. Encourage family members to put on a sweater instead of turning the heat up if they are cold. What tips do you have for saving on heating costs?
