When seasons change we also change how we respond to the elements; like wearing layers or staying indoors when it's cold outside. As we protect ourselves from the weather, we can also protect our pocketbooks from colder temperatures. 
Before you raise your thermostat here are a few things to consider to keep your utility bill down this winter: 
1. The Direction of the Ceiling Fan Matters 
Clockwise or counter-clockwise? If you use your ceiling fan to bring down the accumulated heat that has risen, your fan should run in reverse (clockwise) at a low speed. This draws the cool air up towards the ceiling and forces the warm air down and out towards the walls.
2. Open Your Blinds (Or Close Them)
When it's sunny having your blinds open in the southfacing windows allows for the sun to heat the inside space, reducing the need for the heat to be on during the day. At night, the heat that was inside can be "trapped" by closing your blinds or using insulated curtains to minimize the effect of heat being lost through the windows. 
3. Buy an Insulating "Blanket" for your Water Heater
The U.S. Department of Energy reports that buying a "blanket" for your electric water heater reduces your water heating costs by nine percent. If the water heater temperature is set above 115 degrees, you can save by reducing the temperature setting on the water heater. With the investment of $20 for the blanket, you are sure to make your money back quickly. A
$300 rebate is available if you need to purchase a new gas water heater.
