MONEY MATTERS WITH SHEILA - HEAT SAVINGS


It’s getting cold outside, and that cold air is probably making its way into your house. Caulking your windows and weather-stripping exterior doors will help prevent warm air from leaking out and cold air from seeping in, not only reducing your heating bills, but making your home much more comfortable inside.

But have you ever thought of using your ceiling fans in the winter? Heat rises. If you reverse your overhead fans to run clockwise on the lowest setting, the fan will push down the warm air. And that means you can push down your thermostat by a degree or two.
