Look at this utility bill. I am sure you are like I am and you are suffering stiffer shock from gas and electric bill. Do not blame your utility company, it is not really their fault.
If you want to lower your heating cost for the remainder of the winter, there are a couple of quick things you can do to give your quick return on your investment.
Number one, the first thing you have to do is used less fuel, just cold in your thermostat and turn it down. Turn it as low as you can tolerate.
Number two, buy a programmable thermostat. These things are really swell when you are away from the house during the daytime or when you are sleeping at nighttime, they will automatically turn the temperature down and that will help you save fuel.
Number three, you can get a really good return on your investment if you add insulation. The best place to go is your attic. You can use baths if you desire and want to do it yourself or you can call a professional. You would be surprised how inexpensive it can be to add several inches or maybe even a foot of insulation into your attic.
Finally, look around your windows and doors. You will be surprised how much energy is wasted when air infiltrates along a door or window seams. Take your hand, rub it along the door and see if you can feel air coming in cold air. If you do, open the door or window, inspect the weather scraping, if it is worn or damaged and needs to be replaced, do it as soon as possible.
