Now halfway through the official winter heating season of November through March, significantly lower natural gas prices have, thus far, helped ease winter bills for Vectren customers. However, given the bitter cold January we are now experiencing, customers should be mindful of ways to use energy wisely through free and low-cost energy efficiency tips.
Energy efficiency tips:
- Set the thermostat on 68 degrees or lower. Plus, for every 1 degree you lower the thermostat for a sustained, eight-hour period, you could see an additional 1 to 3 percent in savings.
- Open your curtains during the day to let in the sun. Using the sun’s heat can save up to 2 percent in heating costs.
