What’s on your WinterReady checklist? Colder temperatures make your heating system work harder to keep your home feeling comfortable. That’s why now is the time to make your WinterReady checklist, with energy-saving improvements that can make a difference in your winter heating bill.
  • Schedule a Quick Home Energy Check-up, an energy efficiency professional will walk with you through your home to provide valuable tips for increased efficiency.
  • Explore the BGE Smart Energy Savers Program®. This program offers a variety of powerful options to save energy, money and the environment.
  • Make these do-it yourself energy-saving  improvements:
    • Save an average of 2% on your energy bill for every degree you lower your thermostat.
    • Lower the temperature on your water heater and conserve hot water when you can.
    • Seal holes and seams in your ductwork and gaps around doors, windows, and outlets.
    • Ensure you have 12 to 15 inches of attic insulation, or an R-38 level.
    • Open curtains and drapes during the day, to let the sun warm your home. Close them at night for insulation.
