If your family is anything like mine, then you probably tend to congregate in one or two rooms. Keeping the doors closed to rooms that aren’t currently being used can conserve a lot of energy. This will also save green on your home heating bill.
The biggest culprit is the bedrooms. Close the door to your bedrooms during the day and evening when they’re not in use. Just remember to open it up an hour or two before bedtime and it will warm up to a comfortable temperature by the time you’re ready to go to sleep.
The bathroom is another room to pay close attention to. Obviously this room gets used quite frequently, but one doesn’t typically spend too much time inside. For this reason, you might want to keep the door closed — sure, it may be cold while you’re in there, but you will warm right back up as soon as you are out.
Conserving energy is about using only what you need. Lower your heating bill this winter by warming up only the rooms that you are actually using. Isn’t it great when saving money and saving the planet go hand in hand?
