CUB offers money saving advice ahead of the winter

Posted by wlpo on October 15, 2013

          When you can feel a cold breeze coming through the front door and the door is closed you have problem.  The drafty door and your favorite recliner that’s parked in front of the heat vent will make your furnace run longer this winter. 

          Natural gas prices in the Midwest are predicted to increase up to 13% over 2012. Jim Chilsen of the Citizen Utility Board says you can lessen the financial impact by winter-proofing your home.

          Chilsen says you can also look for energy-saving rebates through you electricity and gas providers.  Ameren is offering a $50 home energy audit.  And if your furnace hasn’t been checked or cleaned recently, it might be worth the cost of having it done.

          Learn more about winter energy savings by visiting CUB’s website.
