DEP says simple steps could help save money on heating bills

Written by Tim Lambert and Radio Pennsylvania | Dec 7, 2009 7:55 PM

(Harrisburg) -- Temperatures will be noticeably colder this week. So, the state is reminding homeowners to conduct a home energy audit to help cut heating costs this winter. Department of Environmental Protection spokesman John Repetz says since heating bills are a major portion of any household's budget, there are some simple ways to keep those costs at a minimum. "You can uncover certain areas or little things that you can do to help reduce those bills, as we get into the time of year when your energy costs are giong to be at their highest." Repetz says a professional can also be called in to audit a home to check for things like the efficiency of heating and cooling systems and whether there's sufficient insulation in the walls and attic. The state's Turn, Seal and Save website also offers additional energy saving tips.
