HERE. Here are a few tips that can help lower your heating bill, increase the temperature in your home, and lower the impact your heating has on the world. 1. Look out, drafts! Look for any drafts in your house and seal them. Light a candle or incense and hold it up to doors and window frames. If the candle flame flickers or the smoke of the incense flows towards the window, there is a draft there. Use caulk or weather stripping to seal the drafty areas. Use a draft stopper at the bottom of your doors to keep cold air from seeping under the door and into the house. Also be sure to check any electrical outlets on walls that lead outside the house. If there’s a draft, cover the outlet with felt or another thick material. 2. Install a programmable thermostat that increases the temperature when you’re home and lowers the temperature during the times when you don’t need higher temps, such as when you’re asleep or away. Be sure to turn the thermostat down to 60 degrees for those times. 3. Use heavy drapes or curtains in the winter. A heavy material in front of the windows will block out the cold air that can come in through the glass. If you already have drapes, consider sewing a heavy material to the backside for the winter months. 4. Invest in warm flannel or fleece sheets and comforters, like the OMI wool comforter.

Dress in layers, wearing long underwear next to your skin. This will significantly help keep you warm and cozy.
