1) Set your thermostat to 68 degrees fahrenheit when you're at home, and as low as 60 degrees farhenheit when not at home. This will save you money on heating costs and is more efficient to heat your home.

2) Seal air leaks in your home. Common places for leaks are attics, basements, around windows and doors. This will keep the warm air inside, and keep the cold air out.
