  1. Flush the Water Heater Particles and sediment can collect over time in the bottom of your water heater. Flush the water through the drain valve to clear out the material and keep your heater functioning at its best. Cost: 100% free!
  2. Ceiling Fans Ceiling fans are great and energy saving for the summer. But what you probably didn’t know is that they can help out in the winter as well. Have your ceiling fans move in a clockwise direction so they push hot air along the ceiling towards the floor. If they’re going counterclockwise, they won’t be as effective. Cost: free if you already have a fan.
  3. Replace Filters Regularly changing the filters in your central air and heating system can significantly improve its efficiency while easing the pressure on your wallet and saving you on high heating bills. Cost: a new filter runs about $10-$15.
  4. Window Insulation Film It may not be the most fabulous looking but it’s a fact that window insulation film can keep up to 70% of your heat from leaking out of windows. Cost: $20 to $35 per kit.
  5. Clean Your Gutters You probably heard it many times before but we can’t stress enough how important it is to clean your gutters before the winter. Making sure that water can flow freely through your gutters will help prevent icicles from forming later. Cost: Free, if you do it yourself.
