Keep warm this winter with Wattsmart

Wattsmart® has options to help you get the most out of your home heating this winter. With tools and support, you can save money and take actions to keep your home warm and cozy all winter long.

Simple ways to stay warm and save money

Staying comfortable all winter long is easier than you think. With some simple steps, you can enjoy a warmer home, reduce your energy use and save money

Set your thermostat for savings

To reduce your energy use by 10%, set your thermostat to a comfortable 68 degrees when you’re home and lower it by another 10 degrees when you’re asleep or out.

Rethink those space heaters

Space heaters can be handy, but running a 1,500 watt portable heater 8 hours a day for 30 days can add an extra $30 to a monthly power bill in winter.

Opt for a smart thermostat

With a programmable or smart thermostat, you can lower the temperature while you’re out and still come back to a warm and cozy home.

Consider a high efficiency heat pump

A heat pump or ductless heat pump delivers heating and cooling for a fraction of the cost. Rebates from Wattsmart® can help you make the switch.

Keep temps steady

Bumping up the temperature on a cold day raises your heating costs without making your home warmer any faster.

Use window coverings

Your curtains and blinds aren’t just for privacy and decoration. Close them at night to cut down on drafts and open them during the day to let in the sun’s heat.

Weatherize doors and windows

A quick check of doors and windows can reveal problem spots. By sealing any air leaks with caulk or weatherstripping, you can save money and increase your comfort.

Clean and maintain

To keep your furnace running efficiently, clean or replace filters regularly, keep your heating registers clear and schedule routine system maintenance.

Keep warm and cozy. Get home energy use basics, see what affects your bill and identify more ways to save.
