As winter approaches

As winter approaches we are looking for ways to keep warm without heating up our power bills. Here are some tips:
Keep your heater's thermostat set  between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius
Use thick curtains to stop heat loss on winter evenings but during the day let the sunshine stream through windows
Close off any rooms that don't need heating
If shopping for a new heater  an efficient natural gas heater is the best
Avoid using the clothes dryer
