How to Stay Green this Winter

Even though the holidays are over, winter has only just begun, so we still have a few more months of cold weather ahead of us. Staying warm during these cold months can be costly, and especially after all your spending over the holidays, you should watch your hydro and gas bills!

Having Energy Star appliances installed in your home can help you save plenty throughout the year, but during the months of winter it’s wise, not only to your wallet but also to the environment, to watch your heating system. Here are five quick easy tips for you from Mason Homes to follow:

Make sure your thermostat is set at 20° Celsius (68° F) during the day and if you leave the house for more than four hours or before you go to bed, set it to 13°C (55° F).

  1. If you have thermostat controls, you can close off rooms that do not need heating.
  2. If you are using the fireplace, make sure to turn down the heater.
  3. Be sure to clean your furnace and change the filter regularly.
  4. Layer up when you’re inside your home, so your body is kept warm and cozy.

Stay warm and make the most of your already energy-efficient home!
