  • Clean or replace the furnace filter and air conditioner filters.
  • Insulate the water heater and its pipes and set the thermostat to 120 degrees.
  • Apply polyethylene film or disposable plastic insulation to windows.
  • Clean light fixtures to improve brightness.

  • Remove or cover window air conditioners during cold months.
  • Install a well-sealed insulated skirt around the base of the home.
