Stay Warm With These Hot Tips!
You need to stay warm – but do you worry about utility bills?
How much will it cost you to heat your home and stay warm this winter? It seems to get more expensive each year.
But it doesn’t have to. By making clever choices, you can save money while you stay warm – and live green! Because heating your home is not only a major cost to you, but it also costs the Earth – it contributes to climate change.
Whether you stay warm via electricity to power your heating system, or oil, coal or wood, you’re emitting carbon. The more fossil fuels (oil, coal, gas) we use, the more we contribute to climate change.
It Makes Sense!
