As wonderful as the holiday season can be, it can also be a stressful time for our budgets. Let’s face it, everyone can use a little extra savings to start the new year off on a strong foot. MacFarlane Energy is here to help!


Conserving energy is an excellent way to reduce your annual home comfort costs and put more money back in your pocket. We asked our team of energy experts at MacFarlane Energy to come up with a list of their favorite conservation tips to save this winter, and this is what they had to say.


Winter Conservation Tips:  

  • Naturally Heat Your Home: Open your curtains and shades during the day to allow sunlight to heat your home. And remember to close them at night to block the chill from cold windows.
  • Switch Direction of Ceiling Fans: If you have ceiling fans in your home, switch them to spin in a clockwise direction. This will create an updraft and circulate warm air around the room.
  • Seal Air Leaks: Check around your windows and doors for air leaks and replace cracked or broken weather stripping to reduce cold drafts.
  • Maintain your Heating System: Make sure your heating equipment has been inspected and tested by the experts at MacFarlane Energy. This will help protect you against mid-winter breakdowns and improve your energy efficiency.
  • Adjust the Temperature: Turning your thermostat back when you are away from home or sleeping can save you as much as 5% - 15% a year on your heating costs.


MacFarlane Energy offers free conservation consultations that help you understand the current energy efficiency of your home. If you would like a more detailed analysis, you can schedule a home energy audit, which will provide you with a full assessment of your home and the short and long-term solutions to help improve it.  


Energy conservation will not only save you money, but it will also reduce your carbon footprint! It truly is the gift that keeps on giving. Interested in learning more conservation tips for additional savings? Contact us at 718-326-9500 for more conservation advice.
