The temperature is dropping and the heating bills are going up. Some quick and easy tips will have you saving money this winter on home heating bills.

1. Set your thermostat back. For every degree you set your thermostat back over eight hours, you’ll save about 1 percent on your heating bill each year.

2. Use a space heater. If you spend most of your time in one area of your home it is less expensive to use a space heater than turn up the heat in your entire home.

3. Open blinds during the day to let sun in. At dusk, close them to trap heat.

4. Inspect weather stripping around exterior doors. Replace old, cracked, or missing stripping.

5. If heat is escaping at your doors, attach a sweep to the bottom of the doors. Sweeps are flexible plastic strips that are easily screwed to door bottoms, and keep cold air out from below.

6. Fill gaps around windows with interior and exterior caulking. If cold air is coming in around the sashes, install appropriate weather stripping.
