Turn Down the Heat

Want to cut your home utility bill? Then start by turning down the heat, both on your thermostat and on your hot water heater. Layer on another sweater to stay cozy even after you drop the temperature a few degrees and – if you have the funds for a one-time splurge – invest in a high-tech thermostat system that will automatically adjust the heat when you’re out of the house.
