Install a ceiling fan. Circulating air helps stabilize the temperature in your home. Maintain your air conditioner and heat pump filters properly. Nothing slows down a heater or an AC unit like a clogged air filter. Adapt a little — rather than keep your home at 70° year-round, drop it by 3° in the winter and raise it by 2° in the summer. Get a programmable thermostat. This simple device will allow you to spend less effort heating or cooling a home when everyone is at work or school, or asleep. Install a woodstove or a pellet stove. Either one of these is more efficient than a furnace for heating all but the largest homes. Close your curtains when the temperature outside is significantly less comfortable than it is inside. The increased insulation will reduce the need for your heating or AC to kick into overdrive.
