Fooling with the thermostat can waste energy this winter... and cost you money, too. So why not find a lower setting that is comfortable, preferably 68 , and leave it there during the waking hours. At night, lower your thermostat. For every degree its lowered, you will save more money. However, when the temperature outside is O' or below, don’t lower the thermostat setting at night by more than 6 or 7 degrees. A lower setting might make your furnace work overtime to reheat your home in the morning. Here are some other suggestions that will help you conserve energy and save money this winter: Weatherstrip and calk around windows and doors. Seal against air leaking to the attic. An opening to your attic can result in a substantial heat loss. Close the fireplace damper tightly when your fireplace is not in use so you don't let a lot of warm air escape. Let the sunshine in on sunny days but close drapes to keep the heat inside at night. Don’t put furniture or drapes in front of warm air registers or cold air returns. Humidify for increased comfort. Consider outside temperatures and be careful not to add too much humidity. Clean or change furnace filters once a month and be sure your furnace fan is kept clean, oiled and working properly.
