Kansas Gas Service Offers Energy Tips to Save Money on Your BillFree Access



 

Want to stay warm this winter while also saving money? Proper weatherization can reduce your
heating costs by up to 10-15% depending on the extent of improvement. Here are some easy tips
to make sure your home and heating system are functioning properly to use less energy and
minimize unnecessary costs.

• Air sealing your home can help you save money on heating and cooling costs.
Caulking cracks or openings and weather-stripping your doors and windows are two easy
ways to air seal your home.
• Set the temperature on your water heater to 120°F or the “warm” setting.
Setting to 120°F will maintain an adequate temperature that still fights off bacteria while
saving you money.
• Replace or clean your heater’s air filters. Dirty air filters cause a system to overwork
by slowing down air flow and using unnecessary energy. It’s recommended to change
central heating filters every three months.
• Have a licensed professional inspect your heating and cooling equipment annually.
When a heating and cooling system is serviced and cleaned properly, it will operate more
safely, last longer and lower your utility bill.
• Change the rotation of your ceiling fans. When rotating in a clockwise direction,
ceiling fans push warm air downwards toward the room’s occupants. By allowing for
better heat distribution, thermostats won’t need to be set as high to warm your home.
