No-Cost Heating Tips
Open blinds and drapes during the day to let warm sunlight in. Close at night.
Set your thermostat between 18°C and 20°C before bed and 16°C when you’re away.
Having people in? Lower the thermostat a few degrees to account for the extra body heat.
Set your ceiling fan to spin clockwise – it will gently push hot air downwards to keep rooms cozy.
No-Cost Cooling Tips
During the day, keep curtains drawn to limit the amount of sunlight you let in.
Set your thermostat between 24°C and 26°C before bed and 28°C when you’re away.
Only cool the rooms you use. Shut off air registers and keep doors closed in any others.
Air dry clothes using a clothesline or drying rack to save energy and avoid adding heat from the dryer.
Plus! Installing a smart thermostat can help _you save automatically on heating and cooling. _See how to qualify for a $100 on-bill credit.
