There are many actions consumers can take to reduce winter heating costs. Using a programmable thermostat, adding insulation where needed, and caulking/weatherstripping around doors and windows are just a few ways to reduce heating costs.
When a new heating system is needed, consider an energy efficient heat pump as another way to reduce winter energy costs. IPL offers rebates for qualifying heat pump systems.
