LCEC has hot tips for cold days

LCEC has hot tips for cold days

It is cold everywhere this week…including SWFL! If at all possible, resist the urge to turn on the heat. Heating your home can cost two to three times more than cooling it. Even a few days of running the heat will raise your electric bill since it is the most intense use of electric energy in the average home and is the most expensive electric appliance. Consider using an electric blanket or space heater to keep you and your loved ones warm during this cold snap, but be sure to read all the manufacturer instructions before use. Here are some other ways to stay warm without using any electricity:

• Bundle up in layers. Blankets, sweatshirts, socks…you name it. All will keep you toasty without heating up your electric bill.
• Move around. Exercise in any form will warm up your body while getting your blood flowing.
• Fire up your fireplace…if you are lucky enough to have one. Just be sure to use it safely.

If you must heat your home, LCEC recommends setting the thermostat between 65 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Stay warm, SWFL!
