10 Easy Ways to Save on Heating

Winter is coming so it is time to feature my post on 10 Easy Ways to Save on Heating! I live in the Midwest so we get about a one month respite in between running the air conditioner and needing to turn on the heat. Hard on your wallet, hard on your bones!

Fear not, there are ways to get that bill down – and it starts now! You can see all ten of my tips at this post.

My favorite tip is the one about the plastic on the windows. When I was in college I had a horrible little rental with the worst, leakiest windows I have ever encountered. I kept a “not my problem” attitude about it, but my dad went out and bought a bunch of those window kits for us. My roommate and I put them up the next week and our heating bill decreased by just over half! I must say it surprised me that a little bit of plastic could do so much. It also made the house cozier since you didn’t come across cold drafts everywhere you walked.

I live in the Midwest too. It gets a little bit miserable! I love the plastic on windows thing too though… it works wonders!

I hate the midwest winters 🙁 I wish I could have one good snow and then back to spring/fall/summer. I'm glad you like the plastic too – it is a great tip!
