Winter Energy-Saving Tips from GP&L
  • Keep your thermostat set to 68° while you’re home, and then lower it a few more degrees when leaving the house. 
  • Clean or replace filters for your air system at least once a month. Dirty filters will make your system work harder and run longer than necessary.
  • When not using the fireplace, keep flue dampers closed to prevent heat loss out of your home.
