Cold days

On cold days, you may have an extra need for warmth. We have gathered some tips for effectively and sustainably utilizing heat.

Tips for effectively and sustainably utilizing heat:

  • Keep windows and doors closed as much as possible. This helps to retain heat inside the home. If you do want to open windows, choose to do so during a relatively warm time of the day, such as during the day, and only for a short duration.
  • Minimize nighttime temperature reduction. If your home cools down, it takes a lot of energy and time to bring the home back to the desired temperature.
  • If you are away from home for a short period, it is not necessary to let the home cool down. If you are away for a night or a few nights, it may even be more sustainable to keep your home at temperature than to let it fully cool down.
