New Year’s Day has come and gone, which means it’s time to make some smart resolutions. Whether you are a homeowner who is concerned with the environment or is just a regular Joe looking for ways to keep your electric bill down, the new year is a great time to reduce your energy spending. Take a look at these ideas:

Keep It Cool – Floridians are sensitive to those colder days. It may be tempting to crank up that thermostat on those colder days, but putting on a sweater or socks is often just as good. You can make things cozy at home by investing in a big throw blanket and sitting on the couch watching movies with your family on those particularly chilly days.

Heater Efficiency – Did you test your heater before turning it on for long-term usage this year? If not, it doesn’t hurt to have an HVAC specialist take a look at it and make sure that your system is running properly. You are likely due for maintenance after those hot days.

Check Your Windows – Making sure that your windows are properly insulated can change the way you run the heater or AC in your home. If your windows feel drafty, invest in some weatherproofing to stop them blowing! This also stops cool air from escaping your home during the summer.
