The weather is getting colder, but the need for winter savings remains hot. This means, as temperatures drop, we will need more energy to keep ourselves both comfortable and healthy. But, if you use to much energy, you can burn a hole in your pocket.
The energy we use is neither free nor cheap, so the need to find winter savings becomes necessary. In addition, winter can be filled with many unexpected expenses, so you should always be prepared.
We gave some tips on how to find winter savings in our previous blog, How to Save Money for the Winter Season.
The goal is to make these unexpected expenses, no longer unexpected. With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s time to make some changes to become financially secure. Here are a few things that can help.
Where to find Winter Savings
The sun is one of the planets greatest sources of energy, and it can be your source of energy too. By leaving curtains open during the day, the sun can be used to naturally heat your home. In contrast, at night you should close your curtains to reduce the cold you might feel from the windows
Windows can be a great source for the outside cold to enter and the inside heat to exit your home. By properly insulating your windows, you can prevent this unwanted exchange from occurring. One method to help insulate your windows is by taping a clear plastic film to your window frames.
The lighting used around your home is another area that can be considered for winter savings. Using light-emitting diodes (LEDs) around the house or with holiday lighting can make a substantial difference with your energy bills. LED manufacturers and brands of ENERGY STAR® potentially use 75% less energy, and will last 25 times longer, than incandescent lighting.
