The temperature’s dropping, and the heating bill is rising! The Frugal Girls recently asked their readers for tips on how to save money this cold winter. They received lots of great ideas for cutting back your electric/gas bills.
Here a few ideas (and click on the link below to read the all of them!)
- Don’t close too many vents at one time. HVAC contractors warn that trying to force 100% of your heated air through too few vents will quickly burn up your furnace’s motor.
- How about an electric mattress warmer? Get your bed warmed up, then dial down the thermostat and snuggle in.
- Put your water heater on a timer.
